Scott Stribrny, (speaker, consultant, and entrepreneur, with over 30 years of experience in organizational change) will explore large-scale organizational change and continuous improvement and will provide a cogent illustration of the various interventions that lead to success.

Change is something companies must do if they are to survive and compete in today’s business world. The successful management of change using a project-based intervention is crucial for any organization to succeed in the highly competitive and evolving global business environment.

For many, expensive flaws persist in their approach to change. This presentation examines effective models of change along with key operating assumptions worth understanding. Discussion will address how to assess readiness for change including organizational members’ shared resolve to implement a change (change commitment) and shared belief in their collective capability to do so (change efficacy). Organizational readiness for change varies as a function of how much organizational members value the change and how favorably they appraise three key determinants of implementation capability: task demands, resource availability, and situational factors.

This presentation will describe both successful and unsuccessful efforts to bring about large-scale change and will provide a cogent illustration of the various interventions that lead to success. Two major questions will be addressed:

  1. What are reliable operating assumptions about dealing with change, and how do you apply them?
  2. What are approaches for dealing with change, and how do you recognize and choose among them?
