Change isn't new, but disruptive change presents challenges for even the best of executive leaders. That’s not surprising since leaders typically haven’t been trained in tackling disruptive or emergent change. Until now.
Today, organizations are realizing that complacency, outdated methods, and resistance to change can lead to their rapid demise. They just don’t know the best way to begin a journey of change that can also mitigate risk and optimize success.
What's most critical now is how leaders respond to inevitable change, how they utilize and leverage disruption, how they transform their organizations, and how they act proactively to build future opportunities.
Routes toward Transformation
Plans to address change will vary with every organization, with no pat solution.
Various routes include managing the process in-house or engaging a consulting firm:
One route is to plan for change in-house.
The drawback here is that internal
resources rarely have the specialized skills to deal with today's vagaries and complexities; they typically lack the breadth and depth to solve enormous disruptive change issues.
Additionally, they are committed to other internal priorities and projects.
Management consulting firms
The large consulting firms have much intellectual capital. But they usually don't provide senior-level, personalized attention; if they do, it is extremely limited since their consulting model isn't designed for this.
Instead, they provide limited time with experts and maximum time with less experienced consultants. Their services also come at a substantial price tag.
Change management firms
These consultants offer a more narrow approach, but they generally tout an off-the-shelf formula -- a "silver bullet" solution, and they may not accent Change Leadership™ with staff engagement, Change Strategy, or Culture.
While their model promotes "one size fits all," the reality is that all organizations, even those in the same industry, approach leadership, work, and culture in different ways.
