The 3 most common Change Management scenarios leaders encounter ….and how you can master them

by Ken Thompson, 05 December 2017



The first scenario a leader may encounter is bringing change to their own team or teams. In this scenario a leader should possess the necessary organizational authority to lead the change. It is also important not just to get colleagues on board on a one-to-one basis but also to do the necessary foundational work within your team to fix broken processes or address issues which might otherwise undo your best change management efforts. 

The Dashboard CHAPTER Simulation explores this important change scenario.



The second scenario is bringing change to senior stakeholders (aka the “higher-ups”). For example, you may be leading or supporting a major system or process rollout and your job is to get some key people on board as “change champions”.  Note in this scenario you are probably operating without the weight of direct organizational authority behind you, so you will need to use all your lateral, social and indirect influencing skills.

The Dashboard COHORT Simulation explores this important change scenario.



The third scenario is bringing change to people who are neither your leaders nor your subordinates. They might be colleagues inside or outside your organization many of whom you barely know. This is the large-scale change rollout scenario and to succeed here you need to master a number one-to-many interventions which do not rely on face to face contact.

The Dashboard SPREAD Simulation explores this important change scenario.
