2 2 Todays Objectives Introduce the Rapid-Results Approach & Process 1.Work to: Define Rapid-Results Goal Develop Work Plan to achieve the goal Agree on how teams will operate

3 3 Implementation is Tough 50% of projects fail to achieve their objectives 75% of projects come in over budget and/or behind schedule

4 4 Why Implementation is tough? Goal is in the distant future Being busy with too many things Leaving tasks ill-defined and vague Not making it clear who is in charge Making things very complex and interdependent

5 5 Count the Number of Squares Implementation Risk


7 7 The Rapid Results Approach Rapid Results Approach (RRA) is a results- focused learning process (methodology) aimed at jump-starting major organizational change efforts and enhancing implementation capacity. RRA tackles large-scale medium and long-term change efforts through a series of small-scale, results-producing and momentum-building initiatives implemented within 100-days, commonly referred to as 100-day Rapid Results Initiative (RRI).

8 8 Rapid Results Approach Cont… These short-term 100-day initiative goals therefore form the building block towards the achievement of the long-term goals The premise of the Rapid-Results Approach is to create a context for learning and for enhancing implementation capacity Helps organizations work on sharply defined 100-day initiatives that dovetail into Annual Work Plans and Strategic Plans

16 16 Creating the Work Plan Developing a good work plan to achieve your goal 1.Develop Milestones Must be a major accomplishment Stated in past tense 2.Develop Action Steps i.e. specific steps to be taken; Start with an action verb Spell out a concrete deliverable Include a deadline Be clearly assigned to one person (from the team) 3.Test and Refine the work plan Are all relevant milestones included? Are the activities as detailed as possible? Is there ONE person assigned to over see each activity?
