Sustaining performance improvement initiatives is not easy. According to The Ken Blanchard Group, 70% of change initiatives fail. We can probably all agree that performance improvement initiatives require sustained change.  Hence, we must improve the process AND the sustainability scaffolding in order to change the percentage of failed projects.

Geri Lopker & Associates LLC completed a very successful performance improvement project in 2008/09 with a regional water utility (even though there were many bumps in the proverbial road). The improvement gains were sustained for over five years. Unfortunately, years later, the improvement changes have been muted, the problems in the department have increased, and the staff are again demoralized. Customers are again waiting on hold to talk to Customer Service.

This program delivers the highlights of the actual project, the solutions implemented and results of the project. Geri shares the change support scaffolding approaches that worked, and those that did not.

She offers three suggestions for improving the sustainability of performance improvement projects.

This program will help you improve your ability to:

  • Identify organizational impediments to sustaining improvement gains over time
  • Learn and apply two suggestions that will help you sustain improvement gains and changes over time
  • Learn one approach that you can use immediately to assess your organization’s readiness for sustaining improvement

We’re excited to have you join us for this outstanding program by Geri Lopker
