Organizational Transformation Basics for Success (2020)


To develop your leadership it is helpful to step back and take a look at your organization from the viewpoint of what is required to bring about organizational transformation. You will need this knowledge for the transformational leadership it takes to shift to working in a new leadership paradigm. In this module, you have the opportunity to consider what works, what doesn’t work, and how to position your change effort to be one that is successful.


If you are contemplating initiating a change effort for something to change in a community, a team, and organization, or another enterprise big or small, this program has been created for you. You may be aware that there is a high failure rate in projects designed to bring about transformative change. In fact, according to researchers, 90% of transformative change efforts fail. You want your change effort to be among the 10% of change efforts that succeed and produce demonstrable sustainable results.

Join us in an engaging online program to learn more about organizational transformation, what works, what doesn’t work, and how to position your change effort to be one that is successful. A really good first step before charging ahead involves having a framework for the larger scope of what you want to accomplish. This first step, as important as it is to success, is often overlooked and bypassed.

A really good way to develop your framework is to explore system change.  One key emphasis of the workshop is to assist you to develop your own framework for the larger scope of what you want to accomplish. Via a facilitated process, you will be guided in the development of your framework, tied into your worldview about organizations. Your framework is going to be a practical, useful conceptual container for you as you undertake the change work that you want to accomplish.

As part of the framework, you will be presented with the importance of expanding your goal beyond the effectiveness of the organization, to a goal for sustainability via growth effectiveness. This requires new competencies, capabilities, and capacity.

In these times, change is constant regardless of intentional change efforts. Your change effort will be taking place within an organization in motion. Thus, the need for organizational transformation that can happen quickly and be successful is increasing. Dalar International Consultancy has worked with successful organizational transformation for three decades. We will share with you from our practical experience.
