Why Organizational Change Resolutions Are Easily Broken

Over the past few decades many organizations have jumped on the change bandwagon with a long list of resolutions to change their ways and develop new habits. Here’s a partial list:

  • Safety culture
  • Customer centric/focus/service
  • TeamworkOrganizational Resolutions
  • Innovation
  • Flexibility/adaptability to change
  • Best place to work/top employer
  • Excellence
  • Market/industry leadership
  • Higher employee engagement

Like too many New Year’s resolutions, these good intentions have a high failure rate. About 50 – 70% of these organizational efforts fail to change organizational lifestyle and habits. On the other hand — using the same set of tools and techniques — 30 to 50% of this work produces dramatic and lasting organizational transformation.
