This Tool guides you through the process to create your Conditions for Success–the factors that you believe are required for your current change effort to succeed. This work is Task: Create Conditions for Success (Task I.F.2), which is part of the CLR Activity I.F Build Infrastructure and Conditions to Support Change Effort.
Conditions for success are requirements essential to the achievement of your desired outcome, such as adequate resources, sufficient time to do a top-notch job, or quality communications that keep everyone engaged. They also include the vital, but less tangible aspects of change work, such as the state of being that enables the transformation to occur more smoothly and the personal transformation work required such as creating a safe environment for truth-telling, supporting personal breakthroughs to new behavior, and encouraging cross-boundary conflict resolution, communication and collaboration.
You have probably participated in many change efforts throughout your career. Some of those went well, while others struggled. This Tool provides the means to review both your past and present experiences to identify the factors you believe are required for your current change effort to succeed. Establishing and maintaining these conditions for success will make achieving your intended results more probable.
