The Monthly “Change Insight” Book Tuning: The Digital Change Pendulum June 2018

Change is inevitable, organizational change has become a common practice within an organization, but too often changes are made as a reaction to outer impulses, crisis, and demands. This is the bureaucracy’s way of meeting the challenges. A digital transformation is achieved via dynamic Strategy-Execution-Change lifecycle management, though it is not all linear steps, but an iterative, ongoing and upgoing change continuum. How to spot your change champions and cultivate the culture of learning and innovating?           
The Digital Change Pendulum

Digital Change Pendulum, How Fast can it Swing? Digital means the increasing pace of changes. A changeable organization is to creating organizations where change is the norm and happens the whole time thereby delivering faster and increasing market share. There is the distinction between different types of organizational change - incremental or transformative; the scope, scale, and impact of the changes. In order to build a high-responsive and high-informative organization, digital leaders need to make an objective assessment via asking: Digital change pendulum, how fast can it swing? And how to take a proactive approach to manage the journey of digitalization?

Mastering Changes from Multiple Dimensions? The very characteristics of digital transformation are the increasing speed of change and hyperconnectivity. But change is difficult and has a very high failure rate. So, how to capture the signals of change readiness, how to improve change effectiveness, and how to manage and sustain change efforts multidimensionally?

Riding Learning Curves to Accelerate Changes Change becomes the new normal, and even the speed of change is accelerating. Too often changes are made as a reaction to outer impulses, crisis. How do you make changes to anything without knowing all the parts and how they are related? The goal of Change Management is to manage changes in a systematic way, either for making continuous improvement or innovation. Most of the changes are complex processes, how to ride learning curves to accelerate changes?

How to Lead Through Constant Change? Change becomes new normal because of the "VUCA" characteristics of digital dynamic. Traditional step-by-step Change Management as one-time initiative or isolated approach might not work any longer for constant and multitude of change. Companies need to embed a changeable mindset in their culture and build change capabilities among all staff, not only managers in a continuous way. From a management perspective, what are the roadblocks to change, and how to lead through constant change more effectively?

How to Get Ahead of the Change Curve The change curve is a model of the states that people who are to change will go through because going through the downs of the change curve has a negative impact on productivity, leadership is required to guide people through the different phases in order to flatten the curve and to minimize the impact on productivity.

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes the time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
