Women in Agile : Design Effective Change Strategies With the Six Sources of Influence Model

If you want to change people’s behavior, the first step is to understand what causes the current behavior. However, more often than not, we engage in change and transformation without really understanding why people behave the way they do. The challenge of identifying the causes of behaviors is one of the reasons 70% of transformations fail (McKinsey).

The Six Sources of Influence model is a powerful and versatile tool to uncover the sources of behaviors and design effective change strategies. Although the tool is simple, it demonstrated success in complex and dynamic organizations.

Throughout this event we’ll discuss:

  1. A real-world story that illustrates the importance of identifying the causes of behaviors before trying to change them
  2. How the 6 sources of influence model can be used
  3. How to design effective strategies once root causes of behaviors have been identified
  4. Good practices and pitfalls to avoid
