Somewhere between 50 and 75% on change initiatives fail to “stick” with organizations.  It is usually not because the initiative is wrong, but more because people don’t like to change.  Jeff Christiaansen will be discussing Force Field Analysis, which is nothing new, but seems to be a seldom used tool in deploying effective change.  Jeff will briefly discuss the history of this tool, illustrate how it is used, and, if time permits, we will work through a real life case.

How many of you have tried to deploy change that you know will benefit your organization, but found it was an absolute struggle to make it happen, let alone sustain?  Today Jeff Christiaansen will be talking about Force Field analysis and how it can help us see and understand the factors and forces that maintain the status quo.

Jeff is a CQE, CMQ/OE, and Certified Food Safety Auditor.  He spent many years in the appliance industry working with Amana Appliances as they transitioned from Raytheon, to Goodman, to Maytag, to Whirlpool.  In this part of his life he transitioned from an appliance service technician to reliability technician to Quality Engineering and Regulatory Liaison.   

Jeff also spent 8 years contributing to Quality in the Wyoming oilfield business and completed his graduate work studying Organizational Development becoming passionate about being a change agent. Jeff recently returned to Wisconsin and is a Quality Manager in the food and healthcare packaging industry.  

Please welcome Jeff as we discuss Force Field Analysis.
