Improve change success rates
There are lots of approaches and processes that can improve change success rates.
Stronger governance is not the one that I would place at the top of the list.
The FCA are right with day-to-day risk management - it is a must and an integral part of delivering change with control.
It is not:
❌ Risk management by the external risk team, assessing from the side-lines on a periodic basis
❌ That last SteerCo agenda item – the Risk & Issue log review – that never gets discussed (admit it!)
Instead try these practices that can help achieve delivery with control:
🧩 Welcome the Risk Team into the project team - make them feel part of the team, engage them as risk solvers not risk reporters
🧩 Discuss risks daily in the daily team meeting / stand up
🧩 Put risk reviews and risk resolutions in the To Do List or Team Backlog
Don’t forget the other ISC Enablers of Change either:
🧩 Be agile (as the dictionary defines agile)
🧩 Have a story to tell
🧩 Take care of the unseen psychological impact of change
🧩 Motivated, skilled teams will always win the day
It would be great to discuss the Implementing Technology Change | FCA with any Change colleagues – please get in touch to see how @ISCtd can help you with your Change practices.
