Keep the Business Context Clear, Clean and Simple

When leading change at any level; keep the Business Context clean, clear and simple.

You might ask, “What is a Business Context?”

Well, it could be any number of things that identify and define what the ‘end state’ of change will be.  Sometimes, for simple changes, it’s future targets or goals compared to current performance that define the desired outcomes for change.  And, when more complex change is undertaken, it could be stories or even metaphor pictures that clarify and give depth to the difference between today and the future.

Business Context is usually larger than the future vision alone and encompasses where we currently are positioned relative to the future.  Frequently, the strategies that will be employed to achieve the future vision for change are included.

A few slides, stories or posters are typically all that are needed to engage those who are implementing the change with enough understanding and retention to enable them to take independent action while still staying aligned.
