Why Transformations Fail

February 9th, 2018

In fact, research from McKinsey and Company shows that 70% of all transformations fail. But why?

There are many reasons but are broadly categorised into management behaviour; employees resistance to change and the lack of necessary resources and budget.

In greater detail transformations fail where:

Management behaviour does not support change

  • There is a lack of meaningful communication around the new mission, creating a mis-aligned weak culture.
  • Often Leaders over-communicate that the transformation has succeeded much too soon, which leaves employees disengaged because in reality nothing has changed.

Employees resistance to change

  • People are scared or sceptical, without adequate communication and direction which causes a lack of buy in.

There are inadequate resources or budget to effectively implement.

Successful Transformations typically consist of a portfolio of initiatives, which in turn consist of detailed action plans. Responsibilities are clarified, communication is constant and action is key.

Plan > Execute > Sustain.

Management training is essential. Your programmes will succeed with proven strategies to generate momentum and sustain long term change. Your managers needto be able to deal with the emotions around change if they are managing people through transformation.
