Jeff Whippo shares his views on change effort within an organization. He believes that when planning a shift within an organization, you need to consider some steps to achieve maximum commitment from as many people as possible. He further considers that communication is the most important element of organizational change and believes that open communication throughout a change process is essential to successful implementation.
Jeff feels that deliberate practice is essential to successfully leading change efforts and that guided practice with the ability to make mistakes and discuss processes is critical to adult learning. There are some reasons that can lead to the failure of change efforts within an organization. These include the lack of knowledge, lack of skills and practice, hidden conflicts working against change, and culture working against change.
Furthermore, Jeff Whippo describes managing organizational change as a process for making changes in a way that will minimize employee resistance and cost to the organization while simultaneously maximizing the effectiveness of the change effort.
