Changing Management Processes in Organizations - a Lesson from Public Health

A recent article in the Scientist:
The Scientist : Battling Bad Behavior outlines some of the obstacles to behavioral change - primarily related to public health, and lists a number of the ways to encourage adoption. Looking at the positive side here are the techniques presented for removing the obstacles:

  • Make It Easy
  • Don't Underestimate Peer Pressure
  • Provide Immediate Feedback
  • Be Understood
  • Confront Misinformation
  • Link to Existing Beliefs
  • Effective Presentation

Much of the above might seem obvious, but if you are trying to make changes or implement something new it would be worthwhile to look at how well you are doing all of the above.
