Organisational Change Survey - Report

Summary of key findings

  • ​Change is ineffectively managed and fails to deliver business value. 70% of people stated Change failed to meet sponsor expectations.

 

  • ​Three-quarters of people said that 60% or less of expected value was delivered.

 

  • ​72% of respondents said that organisations are more like ecosystems than machines but that the majority of organisational change initiatives took an approach consistent with a machine view.

 

  • ​The predominant approach to change is big-bet, top-down initiatives that either press on with an inflexible Plan A, regardless of the results, or simply run out of steam and will-power.

 

In the report, I also suggest how you can avoid these problems.
