Generating Momentum In Organisational Change

Generating Momentum In Organisational Change

Momentum is a word often bandied about in relation to organisational change. In my experience it is often used when momentum is absent; i.e. after any effects of the initial launch have worn off and a change initiative has stalled. Executives will then mistakenly suggest activities like a re-launch in order to generate momentum. It is obviously a desirable quality in any change, and I know when it is present because a change seems to be driving itself and does not need to be continuously poked and prodded.

In trying to produce a more scientific definition of momentum I remembered that I actually studied Physics at university and there found all the guidance I needed.
