According to management experts, upwards of 70% of change efforts fail. But we also know that change is an imperative. In safety, this is especially true as technology, globalization, changing demographics, and other factors create new opportunities and new risks. For safety leaders, knowing the end goal is just the beginning. Consider:
- You have a vision for where you want to be but no clear way to marshal stakeholders toward your goal
- You see there’s a gap in performance but don’t have the right data to know how to bridge it
- You want to develop a change strategy but can’t identify the activities that will drive sustainability
A clear understanding of your current state empowers you to realize your goals now and sustain them over the long term.
