Now-to-New: How BRM Can Innovate Organizational Change

InsiderPosted | Category: BRM Capability, BRM Philosophy, BRMConnect | Contributed

Change is a constant companion in the ever-present quest for driving value.

As BRMs, we know that we will always be flexible and available to pivot when necessary. We also know that since our quest to harness value is never-ending, we will always be in the flux of change, and we will always have a static “now” which will evolve into “new” when changes are implemented…which is a cycle that will always continue.

The word transformation doesn’t quite encompass the vastness of the process, so this session introduces the term, “Now to New.”

Think of it as a red bucket of NOW paint being mixed with a yellow bucket of NOW paint, and they form a NEW color of orange…which is a new color composed of existing colors, and on an existing canvas.

Addressing the power of metaphors and told in three entertaining and relevant stories, these three myths about change are addressed in this session:

  • Change is a journey.

  • Change is made from the top down.

  • Culture prevents change.

Change comes from highly influential people. What makes them influential? One important reason they are influential is that they model behavior that others want to imitate.

 To learn more about becoming highly influential, and about the NOW TO NEW theory, watch this timely and relevant session.
