Chief executives and senior managers can make a significant difference to strategic change outcomes when governance and leadership is done right. However, identifying issues when change is being done wrong isn’t easy and these issues can often come as a surprise to managers. Determining where to begin when trying to get change back on track can often be problematic. The guidance contained in this book is based on an understanding of the relationships between: the organisation’s strategic plan; the execution of its change programme; where the organisation is in its life cycle; and the level of risk that the organisation is prepared to accept to effect change. This book identifies the questions that need to be answered to provide assurance that the delivery of strategic change will be successful.
