Common Intervention Strategies for Large-Scale Change
There is a critical need for theories and methods that will allow organizations to achieve large-scale changes efficiently and effectively. Limited research and anecdotal evidence would suggest several important components of large-scale change intervention strategy. Important considerations include the type of intervention chosen to facilitate change, the number of interventions utilized, and the time-frame for implementation of changes. One way of learning about successful intervention strategies is to investigate the experiences of a number of different companies that have been involved in change processes and identify the types of methods used to achieve different types of changes. In a survey of change seminar attendees, 10 common intervention strategies and their corresponding program goals were identified. A one-way analysis of variance across the 10 intervention strategy clusters revealed no overall differences in the success ratings of firms using each strategy.
