The Key Ingredients for Change By Ross Faculty Member Dave Ulrich

David Ulrich

So often our intentions to implement sustained change fall short, and we find both our personal leadership efforts and our organization initiatives starting with fanfare and then fizzling.

"Change is perhaps the greatest challenge in business today."

What does it take to realize sustained organizational change? Through our most recent round of research, assessing data from more than 20,000 HR professionals, we have identified the proven ingredients for successful change. Successful change requires starting it correctly, and then making it stick. Here's how:

Make it simple: Narrow down complexity and focus on a few key behaviors that have high impact on the most important issues.

Watch how you spend your time: As the old maxim goes, actions speak louder than words. Employees see what leaders do more than they listen to what you say. Pay attention to whom you spend time with, what issues you spend your time on, and where and how you spend your time.

Be Responsible: To realize the change, you must take full personal responsibility for it. Make your commitment public, follow up, and don't relent.
