Where is your business on the maturity path? Written by Geoff Rogers

Summary

Managers and employees have to deal with an uncertain world and yet are still required to deliver the day job, while all around them things are in a state of flux.

Our research during 2012-13 – ‘Leading Change in Uncertain Times’ – carried out by personal interviews with CEOs and senior leaders, showed that 60% of major business change programmes fail to achieve their objectives. So how do you set out on this journey with some hope of being in the 40% of successful companies?

There is no silver bullet or magic formula. But, just as you would not set out on a long journey without knowing where you started from and what resources you would need to complete the journey, why would you embark on a change programme without knowing the current state of the business and its capacity to cope?

Our research suggests that the successful companies have a deep understanding of their starting point and plan their approach according to this. While first article focused on key lessons from our change leadership research, the second report focuses upon the importance of understanding prevailing mindset and culture of your organisation – start from where you are. ‘Where is your business on the maturity path’ provides insight to this “maturity curve” and hopefully may give you some clues to chart your journey to success.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or feedback or would like to discuss this further, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
