    Templates For All Levels Of Power And Influence

    These change management templates are for ordinary non-management people, supervisors, middle management, and of course organisational leaders.

    Traditionally, change management books and courses are written from the perspective of someone who has the power and influence to initiate and implement.

    This is correct and important and the first of the change management templates in this package is for "Organisational Leaders".

    But these change management templates are also for the many people using the Practitioners Masterclass materials who do not have much, or any, power or influence.

    People who in many cases have change imposed upon them, by senior management who neither understand nor apply change processes that work for people.

    The change management templates address this from the 4 perspectives of:

    # Organisational Leaders
    - Power & Influence

    # Middle Management or Third Party Support
    - Limited Power & Influence

    # First Line Management and Supervisors
    - Little Power & Influence

    # Non-Management Employees
    - No Power & Influence

    There are also templates of all core processes explained in the Practitioners Masterclass

    Each of the 4 “Power and Influence” change management templates follow this structure:

    (1) Status

    The high level key events in the early life cycle of the change initiative that are specific to the power and influence profile and organisational role.

    (There are between 6 status points for the "Organisational Leaders" and "Middle Management" templates, and 3 status points for the "First Line Management and Supervisors", and "Non-Management Employees" templates.)

    (2) Stalling Points

    Factors that are usually ignored or unacknowledged, and that undermine and significantly increase the likelihood of failure at each status point

    (3) Critical Action Point

    The "one big thing" - a specific action or event that if instigated at this status point has major positive leverage on the change initiative

    (4) Key Questions

    Questions to be addressed by the critical actions point to reach the initial objective for this status point

    (5) Initial Objective

    The defined successful outcome of the critical action point at this status point

    (6) What is most likely to go wrong

    The attitudes and behaviours within yourself, your management peers and your organisation that will offer resistance and seek to undermine you at this status point

    (7) Quick Metrics

    Early informal feedback indicators

    More Than Simple Project-Driven Checklists

    There is more to this than just producing "tick box checklists"! Much more.

    An adaptive approach

    Whilst there clearly is a place for the typical formulaic change processes that integrate seamlessly with checklist driven project management processes, what is offered here is an adaptive approach based on applying the principles introduced and discussed in the Practitioners Masterclass.

    What I mean by an "adaptive approach" is one where change leadership, management at all levels, and non-management employees interact with their human environment and modify their behaviour in response to that environment.

    These templates are designed to be easily and readily adapted to new and changing conditions.

    But still totally compatible with project and programme processes

    These templates are also completely compatible with traditional programme management and project management methods and processes as they use a programme management based change model and methodology.

    Your Own Personal Consultation

    Imagine that you have commissioned me to meet with you and talk through the key events in the early life cycle of the change initiative - from the perspective of your own personal level of formal power and influence within your own organisation.

    If you are like most of my clients you will be asking me a number of basic questions:

    • "What are the key phases of this initiative?"

    • "Based on your (and others) experience - where's this thing most likely to stall at each of these phases?"

    • "What is the one big thing that I really need to do to get maximum leverage and positive impact at this stage?"

    • "What questions should I be asking and discussing with my boss - my staff - my colleagues?"

    • "What's my clearly defined objective at this stage?"

    • "But realistically, tell me what is most likely to go wrong - so I can anticipate it and act most resourcefully and effectively?"

    • "Give me some indicators so I will be able to know how I'm doing?"

    • "I've read and understood the Practitioners Masterclass materials - can you give me some specific guidance of what to do and how to apply it?"
