Before investing in change and transformation, or to re-assess the change opportunities, it’s a good idea to evaluate how your organization would fare if it were to face unpredictable threats or opportunities.
But don’t launch a long, tedious, and expensive diagnostic with complex tools, a myriad of KPIs and an army of consultants yet!

Because an assessment should always lead to actionable conclusions, you can then seamlessly formulate experimental improvements. An experimental improvement is something that you will try, for some specific period, and in some limited scope, to validate the improvement’s assumptions before expanding is. The experimental improvement might be either an organizational capability or a leadership behavior. It’s critical to frame these improvements as experiments and not as ordinary actions. Indeed, it emphasizes that they will require executing multiple tasks, new behaviors, and more importantly that the target outcome is not guaranteed, as is always the case when learning is involved.
