Gravity

In ensuring the continuance of the change, it is important to focus on the intent driving the transition. For example, in writing this book, there was a clear intent to produce something new and original about the field of consulting and change management. In theory, fulfilling the intent is quite easy - just sit down and write a chapter every month and out pops the finished book. However, nothing is quite so simple. Along the way different things occur that both slow the process down and cause energy to be diverted from writing the book. The children's homework, family problems, boredom and so on all conspire to drag the author away from the original plan.

In the same way, your client might have an overt goal to implement a new programme but along the way things occur that cause a deviation. The greatest cause of "intent" corruption can be the organization itself. In many cases, the weight of the structure and bureaucracy built around a change process can take energy away from the transformation.
