Technology Transfer:  How Organisations Change
Reseach has found that less than 5% of planned organisational change results in changing how practitioners interact with clients.  The vast majority of organisational change results in either the agency adopting a change in language or a change in paperwork.  This becomes a critical challenge in an age of commissioning cycles that are supposed to enhance service outcomes.  Study of effective organisational change is called Technology Transfer.  Some key research studies and manuals that shape my consultancy approach are included here:
