Change Takes 18 Minutes and 18 Months

“Every organization is perfectly designed
to get the results it’s getting.”

We redesign organizations and teams for results. Redesign is about CHANGE.

  • Change to the ORG: Vision, Mission, Message or Priorities
  • Change to the TEAM: Roles, Seats-on-Bus, Skills, Team
  • Change to the FUNDING APPROACH: Sales Process, Funding Model, Asking

This kind of change will take 18 Minutes and 18 Months…

There are things that teams will latch onto right away (think: 18 minutes). In the For Impact world these would be the Point of View, Vocabulary or some Nuggets. Teams can start to implement them immediately.

Over time (think: 18 months) the team will come together around a cohesive system and begin working as ‘A Sales Driven Funding Operation.’

It seems helpful for team communication and team development to be able to talk about both immediate and long-term change. “What can we choose to act upon in the next 18 minutes and what can we aim to work toward over the next 18 months?”
