The overriding reason most change initiatives fail

The Ken Blanchard Companies asked 400 leaders why they thought their change initiatives ended up with less-than-stellar results. Overwhelmingly, these executives felt the main cause for failure was poor execution.

Where do most organizational initiatives wind up?

  • Bad Plan - Good Execution: 13%
  • Good Plan - Good Execution: 4%
  • Bad Plan - Bad Execution: 8%
  • Good Plan - Bad Execution: 74%

Based on research, Blanchard believes the fastest way to defuse resistance to change and improve execution is by using a high involvement change strategy. Involve people in the change process—including what it will look like and how it is implemented—provide them with information to allay their concerns, and give them a chance to dialogue and influence the process.
