Making Change Happen Using TOC’s Thinking Processes by Jelena Fedurko-Cohen

The biggest challenge in implementing change is making it happen. Without the collaboration of people whose lives are going to be affected by the change, it is hardly possible. Management often takes it for granted that a good solution, especially one that has proven to be successful in other companies or environments, will work.  However, even a very good solution is only a part of the success. 

Ability to recognize what change means for people, and their reaction towards the proposed initiative, is crucial for leaders.  They must understand how to influence attitude of their people, and how to build agreement and enthusiasm towards achieving the required improvements. 

Theory of Constraints has an impressive portfolio of logical tools that cover every aspect of change implementation, from detecting, verbalizing and analysing a problem to developing a solution, to assessing and trimming risks, to overcoming reservations and removing obstacles, as well as to structuring the change implementation into clearly justified, manageable and auditable actions. 

This conference will show the use of main TOC Thinking Process tools to help lead people through change.
