    • Create sense of urgency – Make employees aware of the need and urgency for change
    • Create a Project Team – Manages all efforts and encourages the employees to cooperate made up from employees working in different jobs and positions
    • Remove obstacles – anything that could undermine goal
    • Create short-term wins
    • Nothing motivates more than success
    • Slow going process. Only after multiple successes have been achieved, it can be established that the change is paying off
