The Change Model

Change follows a predictable pattern both for companies and for individuals. The Change Model helps
you diagnose where you are and what you should be doing to get the most out of whatever changes
you are dealing with.

Change is Introduced

Whether change is introduced by choice or by outside forces, it generally causes the same chain of
events. When changes are made by leaders, the key to success is being prepared to handle the
consequences as quickly as possible.

The Zone of Disruption

When change happens, it causes a downturn in productivity in some way or another. The bigger the
change, the more severe the disruption.

Point of Decision

Disruption continues until people decide to adapt to the change instead of fighting against it. Sometimes people will continue to fight against the change indefinitely.

Zone of Adoption

Once people have decided to adapt to the change, a period of adoption begins and they make changes to their actions to accommodate for it. This leads to a point of productivity that existed before the
change was introduced. The change continues to cost until this breakeven point is met.

Zone of Innovation

Finally, when people begin taking advantage of the change and doing new things, there is an
opportunity to benefit. Without this period, the change will always cost more than it gained.

The Change Assessment

Discover how your employees really see the changes happening around them and just how much they
understand. The Change Assessment is
an online, anonymous assessment that creates a score card
about how executives, managers and individuals in your
organization feel about your most important changes.

The Change AssessmentHow does it work?

1 – An anonymous survey allows people to express their
feelings about changes that are affecting their life and work. Using innovative
testing methods, participants are asked a
variety of questions about

change. The survey can be focused on specific departments or a
random selection of employees throughout the company.

2 – Survey answers are then analyzed and compiled into a
detailed and easy-to-read report that reveals the level of
change readiness and change skills for the entire group.
The Change Assessment is created to ensure accuracy,
giving management a clear
picture of which areas need improvement. Scores are summarized to show
strengths and weaknesses in the following categories: communication, readiness, change skills, focus, alignment, and engagement.

3 – Meet with a LeapVault change enabler to review your Change Assessment.
