Why organizational network analysis and people analytics are the ingredients for successful change initiatives
You are responsible for making a success out of a change initiative at your organization. The books and articles you have read in the past make you a bit frightened with this responsibility, because the literature is more about the failure of change than the success of it. And if you then finally found a success story, can it be adopted to your specific organizational context, cultural norms and expectations?
Most of the change methods are designed for the past. These methods worked well in situations where command-and-control or top-down was still king and business environments were stable. Change could be initiated through the formal internal communication processes, because people read news on the Intranet and the employee magazines from start to end.
These methods are from the past. We need to have methods for the future. This article is about a method for the future: The Three Percent Rule.
