9. Building Transformation Traction
Traction in corporate transformations is built both through sound process architecture as well as one-on-one leadership. Just as we have discovered in the crafting of an ACT-based transformation Launch, there are a number of subtle but important micro-levers that a leader can throw to increase individual commitment and build and sustain traction during its Execution Phase. Among these available levers are public commitments, closed-loop accountability, declarations versus promises, ground truth, and the creation of an internal transformation Process Support Team. Each lever may be deployed to add value to your transformation and to speed up its execution.
