Learning and Change

Everything an organisation knows and knows how to do has been learnt somewhere. Organisational change is no different – it is something that can be learnt. 

There are 2 main things that need to be learnt. First, everyone in the organisation needs to understand how change works, how to talk about how it works, and how to approach it in the light of how it works. Very few organisations get this right.

Second, everyone needs to learn the psychological knowledge and skills that empower them to leverage how change works. Even fewer get this right.

Here’s one way to think about this. Imagine organisational change were a machine with many moving parts. If you put the parts together in the right way, they will work in harmony and enable you to get work done. That’s the first thing you need to learn.

But the machine will not work without fuel. The psychological knowledge and skills are the gas in the tank that empowers and energises the machine.
