The Change And Local Leaders


    It is useful to consider the number of leaders who will be required. The size of the leadership network will have to be a significant portion of the entire organization. An initial target of 10 percent is a good rule of thumb. A very complex organization can require many more. To determine the appropriate number of leaders, think in terms of the overall organization and how it actually functions.

    • How geographically dispersed is the organization?
    • How different is the organization functionally?
    • Are there different business units?
    • Are there different technical processes?
    • Are there different customer bases?
    • Are there significant cultural differences?

    For each of the significant differences, consider what sort of local leadership will best support adaptability. Each leader will provide a point of deliberation for the small decisions that are made on a daily basis.
