Analyses are the starting point for any change initiative. They are the platform that defines your destination, enables you to build buy-in, clarifies your priorities, shapes your plans, and makes it possible to measure progress. They are your GPS - the map and tells you where you, your team, your business and your organization currently are on your journey and where you need to go next to maximize effectiveness, growth, and returns.
There are three working parts in any data-driven gap analysis. Understanding how these parts work will set the stage for you being able to create a truly powerful narrative that can lead change.
- Desired Future State: the conditions - both competencies and capabilities - required to make your goals attainable.
- Current State: data that clarifies your current starting point and frames the urgent case for change.
- The Journey: the priorities to move from the current to future state.
