Begin with the end in mind

Posted on: January 24, 2014

I reflected on my reflection on palindromes and change.

In my previous reflection, I suggested that, in hindsight, change initiatives are coloured by our bias. The stories we tell might be quite different from what they actually are.

My subsequent reflection was prompted by this Rhett and Link video on YouTube.

To create this video, Rhett and Link had to begin with the end product in mind. They recorded (and edited) a video doing things backwards so that when played forwards it made some entertaining and unusual sense. They also recorded the process of making this video.

So here are some my takeaways on change management with ICT

  • It is critical to have a clear vision of what the goal state might be.
  • It is important to document the process and not just the plan. If you cannot document everything, then record the milestones.
  • You can have fun with change. It does not have to be stressful all the time.
