Changing the Clutch in the Paradigm Shift

One of the most recent moves to engage the leadership in Business Transformation is to have the Project Sponsors brief/present BB/GB projects to the Deployment Directors/Senior Leadership. The strategy is a great way to change the old thought process of “kicking the can down the road” or “maintaining the status quo” until the next bloke takes over. This now makes them responsible for ensuring we don’t create problems that blow up in someone elses face. The threat is that a backlogged issue that must be dealt with now could derail another serious issue in the future.

    We have just started doing this and it has already paid big dividends in opening communications between the program deployment folks and project sponsors. Over the long haul, we hope that it will engage the sponsors and raise their level of accountability – – a critical goal for us since we don’t have full time black belts.
