The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Thus, when organizations aren’t happy with their performance we do something called ‘Organizational Transformation
The idea behind these transformations is to create change that leads to different, and preferably, better, results. Real Transformations occur when something requires a holistic change – think disrupters. Examples of drivers of real transformation are things like the move to digital online retail; healthcare delivery; driverless cars; or a large merger or acquisition. Those changes truly call for transformation of the organization and how it does business. Today, change is a constant, but without good diligence, problems can add up and drive the need for Transformation. By responding to change, with a few lessons learned and a “Mindset of Continuous Improvement; Continuous Learning; and, Agility,” leaders can make each day transformative and save the real Organizational Transformations for the scenarios that truly require it.
