Action Priorities
1. Whose behaviour do you want to change?
2. How are you going to change it?
- The answers to these to questions make up your action priorities
Priority Targets
- Identify the individuals/groups that will be most involved in or affected by the anticipated
changes and assessed their commitment and capability for change
- All of these people will be involved in the change process but the question is who do you
start with? These people are the priority targets
- To decide who to focus on, need to integrate other starting conditions into analysis
o Urgency for action and power position relative to the potential targets
- Change Agents
o People who believe change is necessary and propose the change
o Have skills and capabilities to help bring about change
o Competent and committed managers who are potential allies in the change process
- Change Agents in Waiting
o People who want the change to be successful but do’t have skills to help uch
o Decide whether these individuals are priority targets based on how much time you
have to make and implement the change
- Bystanders
o People who will wait and see how the change fares before committing to it
o Lack energy to get involved and wish to avoid risk that comes with involvement
