The False Accomplishment
barrier to getting an Enterprise to mature its Transformation capability is
that many enterprises think they have already “done” some kind of maturation
when in fact they have not.
The fact of the matter is that most Enterprise are very bad
at using and adopting frameworks. Most believe it merely entails sending a
group of people on a training course who then immediately go back to their day
jobs when the course is over, instead of using what they have learned to mature
the domain the course covered.
Because people have gone on a course, a lot of Enterprises
then mentally tick the “completed” box and therefore are not willing to
revisiting the domain later, because they believe they have already “done it”.
Tied up in all this is politics and psychology. When
something is tried and failed, it is often not tried again because trying it
again confirms the first attempt was a failure, whereas if you never try again
an Enterprise can bask in the glow of thinking something has been done when in
fact it hasn’t. The worst of all possibilities.
