Ch ch ch ch changessss!

The most interesting question I took of from the PIUSS PMA (that tks God, I already sent on Monday) was questioning myself if one is really able to build a planned process to change the culture of an organisation. REading books about it I found lot`s of arguments for (and a few against. Smaller quantities because defending that is not possible is obviously less interesting commercially speaking....)


I particularly think that it is possible. But it will take a LONG time. And will need not only a method, a plan, but a lot of skill and occasionally a quite strong fist. I thing it is almost impossible (if not impossible) to change a whole organisation`s culture (unless, perhaps, if it is a small or recently created organisation) smiling, without beeing quite hard and though from time to time.

But I think is possible and Six Sigma can be a good method to do so, if done properly and with care.

Inspirational leadership transformed the way that people worked in the organization very quickly. The CEO made very clear his expectations of his directors and they in turn deployed these expectations throughout the organization. Very quickly it was clear that this would be the way that work was done – it was not a fad. Constancy of purpose of the senior management became evident and, because people were aligned to organizational goals they enthusiastically followed the new way….
