Years ago I heard a quote about communication that I have used ever since: “The biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it is taken care of.” In my work with customers going through organizational change, this has been exactly my experience. Organizations–and their people –have the illusion that communication somehow will magically happen, as long as they have written and published their message. And it doesn’t!

 

Effective communication is an essential part of any effort toward transformational change. But if you’re simply publishing email blasts, you’re not really communicating. The problem lies with not thinking through what your communication objectives are and then not planning on how to meet them.

In my experience, MOC can not only make change go more smoothly, it can also save your organization a great deal of money.
