Founded on tenets of the 8-Step Process, Kotter International equips businesses with the means and method to transform themselves quickly, continuously and with powerful results.
1Create a Sense of Urgency
Craft and use a significant opportunity as a means for exciting people to sign up to change their organization.
2Build a Guiding Coalition
Assemble a group with the power and energy to lead and support a collaborative change effort.
3Form a Strategic Vision and Initiatives
Shape a vision to help steer the change effort and develop strategic initiatives to achieve that vision.
4Enlist a Volunteer Army
Raise a large force of people who are ready, willing and urgent to drive change.
5Enable Action by Removing Barriers
Remove obstacles to change, change systems or structures that pose threats to the achievement of the vision.
6Generate Short-Term Wins
Consistently produce, track, evaluate and celebrate volumes of small and large accomplishments – and correlate them to results.
Use increasing credibility to change systems, structures and policies that don’t align with the vision; hire, promote and develop employees who can implement the vision; reinvigorate the process with new projects, themes and volunteers.
Articulate the connections between the new behaviors and organizational success, and develop the means to ensure leadership development and succession.
