The Breakthrough Process is a strategic roadmap to guide the most complex transformations.

Enterprise, community, social and environmental transformations are a bit like boiling the ocean. Where do you start? How do you get traction and know what steps to take?

The Breakthrough Process outlines the big buckets of work required to deliver breakthrough results from your most complex transformational efforts, no matter how large or challenging.

  • Organization or culture transformations
  • Community-based causes
  • City or municipal governments
  • Government agencies
  • Regional or global environmental interventions
  • Social change efforts
  • Industry policy changes
  • Multi-stakeholder partnerships and supply chain transformations

THE BREAKTHROUGH PROCESS

The Breakthrough Process will guide your journey to achieving breakthrough business and cultural results.

Align Your Leaders
Achieving breakthrough requires leaders to go “all in” and unconditionally commit to doing whatever is required.

This is not a commitment to a particular vision – yet. Rather, a commitment to reaching high and achieving the extraordinary.
Define Your Vision
Achieving breakthrough requires a clear and compelling vision that stretches what is currently thought possible.

This vision must be communicated and embraced by a critical mass of the organization.
Assess Current Reality
Having a clear, unbiased view of current reality – both its human and organizational dynamics – is essential to establishing an effective transformation strategy.
Identify Your
Breakthrough Targets
Realizing your vision will require specific breakthroughs in your organization, culture, and mindset and behavior of leaders and the workforce.

These breakthrough targets give direction and priority to the work required.
Develop Your
Transformation Strategy
Successful transformation requires a comprehensive strategy, including standing up workstreams to achieve your breakthrough targets and clarifying your engagement and communication plans.
Implement the Transformation
Implementation is where outcomes are determined. The Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology (CLR) guides the design and implementation of your workstreams to ensure successful adoption and sustainment of results.
Learn and Course Correct
Transformation is non-linear. Unforeseen dynamics always emerge along the journey.

The beauty of The Change Leader’s Roadmap is how it seamlessly guides your change leaders to adapt and course their process plans as required.
Achieve Breakthroughs
Each or your workstreams and strategic initiatives will deliver their specific breakthroughs because they will be guided by the CLR to see the work through to full adoption and sustainment of results.
Realize Your Vision
Achieving your vision is the natural outcome of the unconditional commitment your leaders and organization made, and the transformational work done to achieve the required breakthroughs.

6 Key Strategies of
The Breakthrough Process

ALIGN LEADERS
Align leaders to the Breakthrough journey first.
Not everyone is an Olympic athlete, visionary or risk-taker seeking to stretch the boundaries of what is possible. We bring this nature out in leaders.

We help them transform self-limiting mindsets and expand their notion of what is possible. From this place of inspiration, they align and commit unconditionally to doing whatever it takes to Achieve Breakthrough.

This unconditional commitment is the key condition for success when you set out to achieve what was previously thought impossible.
1
ALIGN LEADERS
DEFINE VISION
Define vision second.
Traditionally, leaders start with creating a vision. This doesn’t work when you seek breakthrough-level results, because leadership commitment is then contingent upon each person’s level of agreement to the vision. Some are fully in, some are not.

Achieving breakthrough requires an unconditional commitment – to the Breakthrough Journey.

This unleashes new capabilities. Open communication, collaboration and teamwork increase. In this state, leaders easily define, align and commit to a tangible vision.

The key is commit to the Breakthrough Journey first, then co-create your specific vision out of that commitment.
2
DEFINE VISION
IDENTIFY
Identify and pursue Breakthrough Targets.
Your breakthrough targets focus your strategy and prioritize your work. They give direction and generate traction directly toward what is required to achieve your vision.

This removes overwhelm, focuses energy and directs pragmatic action.
3
IDENTIFY
BUILD STRATEGY
Build a robust Transformation Strategy.
Being thorough and comprehensive is key. Anything missed will limit your success.

Your strategy must address both human and organizational dynamics – how you will transform mindset, behavior and culture, as well as organizational governance, systems, structure, processes or technology.
4
BUILD STRATEGY
IMPLEMENT
Implement with guidance.
Your transformation strategy must identify all the workstreams required and how they will be integrated to deliver your needed breakthroughs and vision.

Using the Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology ensures that each workstream delivers its required results.

SUPPORT
Support. Support. Support.
The devil is in the details. HOW you engage in each step of The Breakthrough Process will determine your outcomes.

Using our System of Transformation will provide your executives and change leaders with all the support they need: strategic guidance and consulting, training and development, methodologies, coaching and assessments.
