Visible first actions
Category: Starting the Journey
Is it a good idea to start with some visible, symbolic actions?
I'm not sure I resonate with the notion of "symbolic". I reframe the question differently: do you start with a big, meaty change right away?
Or do you start with smaller changes that help the organization get ready for more? That's the route I've seen many organizations take. In the video, I share some of the first, smaller actions they've taken that I found intriguing.
My hope is for the comments below the video to surface our collective wisdom on the topic. This could enrich the videos tremendously.
Have you experienced something similar in your own journey? What did you do about it? If you have something meaty to share, please add a link to an article, a video ... Feel free to agree or disagree with what I say, but always: please keep it on topic, relevant, practical. And of course, let's keep things respectful and kind. Please don't comment if what you say is off-topic or wouldn't benefit viewers of this page.
