Celebrating Victories Along the Way

undefined

undefined

In
this discussion, comment on change initiatives you have been involved
in at work, as well as change initiatives you have undertaken in your
own professional life. Use the questions below to guide you:

  • How important were short-terms wins – or “milestones” – along the way?

undefined

undefined

Short-term wins or “milestones” are very important along the way. Short-term wins are

undefined

undefined

points along the way that lead to larger goals. Short-term wins offer seeable results that

undefined

undefined

are related to change efforts.

undefined

undefined

  • Describe a situation where short-terms wins were celebrated and the impact this had on the success of the larger project

undefined

undefined

A short-term win was celebrated when the Men’s Polo department sales needed to beat

undefined

undefined

last year’s numbers. There were 3 of us working in Polo we tried to help each other

undefined

undefined

build sales, we were posting on digital communication to try to get customers in the

undefined

undefined

door. We essentially beat our last year’s numbers and we were up for the year. Polo

undefined

undefined

sales impact if we were going to get a new brand in our store Lacoste. We ended up

undefined

undefined

getting Lacoste and it is doing very well.

undefined

undefined

  • Describe a situation where mid-point victories were not adequately leveraged to support the larger project

undefined

undefined

When we were asked to try to get sales up we all know this will open the door to getting

undefined

undefined

new brands in the store. Even though we were slowly getting our sales going we were

undefined

undefined

lacking the merchandise. Many customers who are not willing to wait for something to

undefined

undefined

be shipped to their home because they need it for that day will ask if a surrounding store has it and there goes your sale. By not having the stock on hand we lost out on sales,

undefined

undefined

and it makes it harder for us to maintain trending brands in our store. We need to have

undefined

undefined

the proper tools to succeed.

undefined

undefined

Thank You,

undefined

Ilmari B.
