22 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Challenges – ELL Model Opening of School Celebration District Challenges House Bill 2064 authorized the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) to set up the English Language Learner (ELL) Task Force for the development of a four-hour Structured English Immersion program model. The new four-hour ELL model is mandated for the school year. SUSD has submitted an alternative proposal but it has not yet been cleared or approved by ADE. Structuring and scheduling a program that approaches the requirements of the law while not segregating our students or overextending our resources is our greatest challenge.

37 Shaping Corporate Culture “Sometimes people get it backward. They try to protect the culture at the expense of the actual organization.”

38 Shaping Corporate Culture Culture Change “One never knows what will happen if things are suddenly changed. But do we know what will happen if they are not changed?” Elias Canette, The Human Province

39 Shaping Corporate Culture Fast Company magazine quotes EDS’s Chairman and CEO Dick Brown as saying, “A company’s culture is really the behavior of its people. You change a business by changing the behavior.”

40 Shaping Corporate Culture “We need to keep reminding ourselves, The organization comes first.”

43 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Opening of School Celebration Why Transformation Efforts Fail We’re not just changing, we’re transforming.

44 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail By John P. Kotter Leaders who successfully transform businesses avoid doing eight things wrong! Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail

45 Opening of School Celebration Why transformation efforts fail 1. 1.Not establishing a Great Enough sense of urgency 2. 2.Not creating a Powerful enough guiding coalition 3. 3.Lacking a vision 4. 4.Undercommunicating the Vision by a Factor of Ten 5. 5.Not removing obstacles to the new vision 6. 6.Not Systematically Planning for, and Creating, Short-Term Wins 7. 7.Declaring Victory Too Soon 8. 8.Not Anchoring Changes in the Corporation’s Culture Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail

46 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Why transformation efforts fail Not establishing a Great Enough sense of urgency Lacking a vision Undercommunicating the Vision by a Factor of Ten Declaring Victory Too Soon Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail Leaders who successfully transform businesses avoid doing eight things wrong!

47 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Guiding change may be the ultimate test of a leader – no business survives over the long term if it can’t reinvent itself. But, human nature being what it is, fundamental change is often resisted mightily by the people it most affects: those in the trenches of business. Thus, leading change is both absolutely essential and incredibly difficult. Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail Leaders who successfully transform businesses avoid doing eight things wrong!

48 Opening of School Celebration Not Establishing a Great Enough Sense of Urgency Compared with other steps in the change process, phase one can sound easy. It is not. Sometimes executives underestimate how hard it can be to drive people out of their comfort zones. Sometimes they grossly overestimate how successful they have already been in increasing urgency. Sometimes they lack patience. When is the urgency rate high enough? The answer is when about 75% of a company’s management is honestly convinced that business as usual is totally unacceptable. Anything less can produce very serious problems later on in the process. Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail

49 Opening of School Celebration 2008 In every successful transformation effort that I have seen, the guiding coalition develops a picture of the future that is relatively easy to communicate. Without a sensible vision, a transformation effort can easily dissolve into a list of confusing and incompatible projects that can take the organization in the wrong direction or nowhere at all. A useful rule of thumb: If you can’t communicate the vision to someone in five minutes or less and get a reaction that signifies both understanding and interest, you are not yet done with this phase of the transformation process. Lacking a Vision Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail 3

50 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Undercommunicating the Vision by a Factor of Ten Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail Transformation is impossible unless hundreds or thousands of people are willing to help, often to the point of making short-term sacrifices. In more successful transformation efforts, executives use all existing communication channels to broadcast the vision. They turn boring, unread company newsletters into lively articles about the vision. 4

51 Opening of School Celebration 2008 Perhaps even more important, most of the executives I have know in successful cases of major change learn to “walk the talk.” They consciously attempt to become a living symbol of the new corporate culture. Communication comes in both words and deeds, and the latter are often the most powerful form. Nothing undermines change more than behavior by important individuals that is inconsistent with their words. Undercommunicating the Vision by a Factor of Ten Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail 4

52 Opening of School Celebration 2008 After a few years of hard work, managers may be tempted to declare victory with the first clear performance improvement. While celebrating a win is fine, declaring the war won can be catastrophic. Until changes sink deeply into a company’s culture, a process that can take five to ten years, new approaches are fragile and subject to regression. Typically, the problems start early in the process: The urgency level is not intense enough, the guiding coalition is not powerful enough, and the vision is not clear enough. But it is the premature victory celebration that kills momentum. And then the powerful forces associated with tradition take over. Instead of declaring victory, leaders of successful efforts use the credibility afforded by short-term wins to tackle even bigger problems. They go after systems and structures that are not consistent with the transformation vision and have not been confronted before. Declaring Victory Too Soon Leading Change Why Transformation Efforts Fail 7
