Lesson 6: Strategy Uses
Initiatives might aim to make things better, but they don’t always succeed. Lack of consensus, poorly devised strategies and unreasonable expectations are just a few possible causes of failure. While no recipe exists for guaranteed success, some time-tested strategies can improve your ability to design, implement and maintain meaningful change within your business.
Feedback can help nudge change toward successful adoption by showing you how to fine-tune your initiative to make improvements. For example, if your organization institutes new policies for worker safety, regular feedback from affected employees will help ensure the initiative has its intended effect. Your employees might tell you the policies work well, or they might tell you the policies have little effect on safety while drastically limiting productivity.
