Our Definition of Change
We define change as moving in a planned way towards a shared vision by mobilising the effort and commitment of everyone to identify what needs changing, the strategies to implement the change and the support structures and processes needed to sustain the change over the long term.
Change means doing things differently. Itís about involving all staff and managers in looking at how things are done now and asking how we can do it better, why things need to be done this way - or even whether they should be done at all.
Our approach to change is inclusive and participative and we emphasise the close connection between change and learning. People rarely change unless they learn new skills and tools and are energised by new concepts and guiding ideas they can all sign onto. We believe all change also has an essential cultural dimension. Change canít be supported unless you create or transform the culture to nourish it.
