Connected for Business: 3 keys to guiding your company through change

For our second Connected for Business feature – a Rogers magazine exclusively for business customers and enthusiasts – we’ve chosen an article from the editors of PROFIT Magazine.

If your business has been through a massive change- the kind of endeavor that alters your business processes from end to end – you’ll know that it is not easy to get every employee on board.

In the winter 2012 issue, there’s a great article that can help – Great Ideas: 3 Keys to Guiding Your Company Through Any Change. The article explains how transformation specialists Michael Hammer and Lisa Hershman – authors of Faster, Cheaper, Better: The 9 Levers for Transforming How Work Gets Done – use leadership strategies to make organization wide tactics stick, such as:

  • Educate from the top down
  • Give your project a jargon-free slogan
  • Relate to the strains the organization is experiencing
