The Dark Arts of Managing Change

In an earlier article, I explored why and when domain expertise matters. In that piece I referenced the three differentiators of Alpha change professionals; one of those was an ability “to get things done”. A friend, Simon Bennett, refers to this as “navigating the organisation”, but I think it is wider than that. Few changes are totally confined to a single organisation in terms of needing to contribute to the change or being impacted (positively or negatively) by the change. For that reason, I still prefer the more open “getting things done”.

I found that three pieces of advice/feedback had stuck with me, and I thought I would share them.
