Businesses change is experienced in one of two ways: initiated or forced. Either your business is an agent of change or a victim of it. Bad companies don’t change, the average resist change, and the exceptional embrace change to advance their vision, beliefs, and purpose.
To be exceptional, your business must understand and navigate the ‘change curve’: the required adjustments, at the proper time, to either achieve either an objective or address a circumstance. Not only is the change curve different for every objective or circumstance, they continually challenge your business to adapt quickly and accurately to ensure success and avoid failure.
Navigating the change curve is tricky: too quick and you miss the opportunity and burnout your people; too slow and you miss the opportunity and frustrate your people. The key is to have a phased approach with a tailored strategy, execution, and feedback loop process for each objective or circumstance. Each change curve is unique, so the process for your business to navigate it must be unique too.
