Proof (data) is Change's Best Friend

Culture-change item for the day: Initiating safety culture change is probably best boiled down to reframing what the organization is accustomed to, and then finding ways to view the organization from a variety of perspectives to find the holes and vulnerabilities.

No matter how many times we say change is good, it's not going to happen by itself. Change needs a reason. It needs proof. And whoever's determined to introduce change, needs something compelling to make the case.

Initiating culture change includes overcoming the status quo or discomfirmation, which can be described as providing data that the current methods simply aren't working.

Only after you have people agreeing that change is a necessary and positive force, can you seriously begin introducing new or revised values.
