THE C.O.B.A.L.T. SEA CLIMATE SURVEY, a tool for Change Management and High Performing Systems – Moving from Knowledge to Practice
The context in which today’s organizations are operating is one of volatility, ambiguity and complexity leading to unprecedented levels of change. In this setting change is rather the rule than the exception. As change is the new normality, the speed, magnitude and, consequently, the importance of change capability to organizations has increased. As Change Management proceed throughout the management of the seven Pillars of Organizational Development (cf. www.soton7pillars.com), Southampton Business School (SBS) has endorsed a project to partner with companies in their change effort, starting with the first Pillar of company success, Organizational Climate. Organizational Climate is at the forefront of organizational development and high performing systems. It provides the first step for change and development.
