The intended outcome is the bottom line of your change. A clear and compelling intended outcome is more than a high level vision statement.
- Establishes/affirms a clear direction. Ensures that everyone sees the same shade when they think about “green”.
- Creates buy-in and begins to build commitment for the change
- Outlines the full scope of the change and begins your plan
- Initiates the change process
- Lots of activity with no clear understanding of where it is taking you
- Resistance to change
- A transition plan defines the activities required to support people through the transition process.
- A project plan focuses on the concrete deliverables and milestones. The transition plan helps to guide your process. It specifies both hard activities like training, and soft activities like gaining buy-in. (Most of the transition happens outside of the scope of the project plan.)
- The transition plan is your road map for navigating through the transition. When it comes to planning for change, how you plan is as important as the plan itself.
- Preparation and tailoring of the three day process with change sponsor
- Customization of materials for the Intended Outcome and Transition Plan workshops
- Facilitation of 3 days of working sessions
- Documentation of your Intended Outcome
- Documentation of your Transition Plan
