In this course we discuss the second and third factors of successful change: creating a clear, compelling vision of the change and identifying the call to action.

We begin by discussing the components of a successful vision. We identify how these components are impacted by culture. We discuss how to create an inclusive vision of change without diluting the overall message or making it too complex.

We then move to discussing the call to action. To determine what needs to be done requires considering system implications, and in a global environment underestimating this can result in failure. Once we address these system implications we discuss the specific calls to action needed. Clarifying what first steps you need each group to do across multiple cultures requires special attention to how tasks are delegated and how success measures are established. We identify the common barriers in these phases and the strategies to remove those obstacles.
