Join Britt Andreatta for an in-depth discussion in this video Pilot testing solutions, part of Leading Change.
Once you've decided on an option, it's time to take it for a test drive.…If there's no clear winner, then choose two.…Whether you consider it a pilot test or…a prototype, you'll want to take advantage of this opportunity.…First, a pilot test will help you evaluate the effectiveness of your solution.…Ultimately, you need to solve the problem and you don't want…to waste time and energy implementing something that won't do that.…> When test driving the change, make sure that you assess potential…obstacles you already identified, removing them or reducing their impact.…And look for new challenges that you hadn't yet anticipated.…
Assess how well the current structure and culture…of your organization aligns with the potential solution.…It needs to be a good fit.…So you may discover that you need to tweak…parts of the solution or even revise policies and procedures.…In addition to looking for problems, you want…to pay attention to the signs of success.…Short term and small…wins should be celebrated and built upon.…
