One of the keys to any culture change initiative is creating executive and employee buy in. Seeking such buy-in, Corporations world-wide squander billions of dollars each year in ineffective large group meetings:
- Executive teams spend days wordsmithing vision, mission, and value statements that no one can understand or remember, much less use to make important decisions.
- Project teams wallow in naming, blaming and explaining why a problem exists without ever figuring out how to solve it.
- Sales teams listen to endless presentations about new products and value propositions, only to return to the market with no change in their actions or behaviors.
Anyone who works with others knows that the amount of time it takes to achieve buy-in to any change initiative usually increases geometrically with the number of people involved.
