How many dedicated improvement program leaders have pushed the proverbial boulder up the hill only to watch it roll back down, sometimes flattening the change agents and even the executive sponsor in the process? Why do we focus on the management of change (e.g., the models, processes, methods, plans and tactics) and fail to acknowledge and address the importance of cultural barriers and change leadership? This presentation will explain how to identify and overcome common roadblocks to successful change, including lack of alignment, siloed thinking, decision dysfunction, execution and endurance problems, and missing measurements.
