Ever considered the impact when a project or change initiative lacks detailed action plans? It’s like having a well-orchestrated ensemble poised to perform but lacking a score to guide their movements. The Action Plans element is the final piece of the puzzle. What happens when it’s missing?

When Action Plans are missing, the result is akin to a gradual, meandering progression, or Gradual Change. While the vision is clear, processes in place, resources abundant, and skills honed, the absence of a detailed and sequential roadmap hampers the pace of transformation. Recognizing the indispensable role of Action Plans is crucial, ensuring the collective efforts of the team are directed with precision and purpose.

Reflect on recent initiatives or projects. Did a lack of strategic roadmap impede efficiency? If so, it’s time to reassess your change readiness. Embrace the Action Plans element of the Change Readiness Formula, ensuring your team has a structured plan for purposeful and expedited change.
