How Can I Build Momentum for Change with Short-term Wins?


If you need to implement some kind of change, you know what kind of challenge lies ahead. This program demonstrates how to plan for, recognize, celebrate, and build on short-term wins to support and sustain your long-term change effort.


How Can I Build Momentum for Change with Short-term Wins?

It doesn’t happen overnight. We all know that any kind of meaningful change takes time. And yet sometimes your constituents run out of patience before you prove the validity of your efforts.

Even when you’ve had substantial success, your project could fail if you don’t adequately demonstrate what you’ve achieved before your critics and skeptics have written things off.

There is a way to hold everyone’s attention and maintain support for your change effort. The key is to use short-term wins to demonstrate early achievements and create a clear path of success.

In fact, when you correctly utilize short-term gains, you will build interest in and momentum for your efforts, and that vastly increases the likelihood of overall success.

You can learn how to harness the power of incremental progress in How Can I Build Momentum for Change with Short-term Wins?
