Preparing on a strategic level
As much as the organisation itself needs a strategy, a transformation needs one as well. But it is not enough to have it defined and communicated. A transformation lives from a leadership that is strong enough inside the organisation, that is committed to the change and displays the urgency and commitment on a daily basis in words and deeds. As changes are not welcome by everyone in the organisation, some transformations do not survive the first idea or kick-off meeting, because the change leadership was not strong enough and the urgency has not been transmitted accordingly.
