Change Management - the Six Batteries of Change


06 December 13h00-14h00

The past several years have presented numerous challenges for organizations of all types. The last year in particular emphasizes the importance of an organization’s capacity for change to drive performance and success in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world. However, the literature presents us the brutal fact that about 70% of all change initiatives fail, which demonstrates clearly that additional knowledge and guidelines to support organizational change are needed. For this purpose, this webinar presents the framework of the Six Batteries of Change that are essential to charge an organization’s capacity for change. The Six Batteries of Change offer a holistic framework developed based on research within more than 100 organizations with various backgrounds. It is focused on six critical sources of energy (three rational and three emotional batteries), which are strongly interrelated. The model clarifies how top executives can translate their change ambition into specific actions that have to be launched at different levels of the organization. However, it also highlights the importance of assuring balance between the structures & systems needed to build the business and developing an environment that brings people together in an open and transparent manner.  Together, the energy levels of the various batteries allow to strongly predict the success or failure of new change programs. The model has proved to be a key driver to boost the success rates in various organizations. Further research about this model is also presented in this webinar which adapts the Six Batteries of Change for public sector organizations. These organizations pose additional challenges towards change due to their strict legal framework, bureaucratic structure, stakeholder complexity and risk avoidant nature. Finally a few case-studies are shared from military organizations with remarkable findings, but also applicable examples, which are currently being implemented in various coaching activities.
