DRIVING DISRUPTION

Part Two: Leading Disruptive Change, Step by Step

The leadership and communication skills previewed in part one are absolute requirements for leading change.  Now for a proven plan.

Part two presents specific steps to undertake and detailed checklists for you and your team as you successfully lead and execute change.

Change is a constant, and leaders must do more than keep up—they must innovate and accelerate to succeed.  How will you lead into a disruption-filled future?  The steps provide a guide to preparing and planning so that your change initiative and your team have the best possible shot at succeeding. Driving Disruption presents the steps in the order in which you should generally undertake them.  Some overlap and some may require repetition over the course of your change. Read the complete steps and use the downloadable checklists—modified into whatever format works for your needs—to guide you through the process.
