Insufficient Active Change Leadership:My EBP project include creation of space for a new unit thus financially involving.Sponsorship is the single most important factor in implementation success! But remember, project Sponsors must do more than sign a check authorizing funding for an initiative and show up at the project launch meeting. They must authorize, legitimize and demonstrate ownership throughout the lifecycle of the project. This is the only way the project can be sustainable. It is critical for Sponsors to be consistently expressing, modeling, and reinforcing their personal and collective commitment to the change. This includes Executive leaders down through the middle layers of your organization. It is the cascade of commitment that we are seeking as Change Agents.Poor Communications: There is a common belief that just getting a message out to an audience is enough to get buy-in, eliminate resistance and even drive behavior change. As a result, too many organizations singularly invest in top-down, one-way communications that don’t motivate people to move from the status quo to the desired state.
A change management communication plan is not at all the same thing as a change implementation plan. Centering efforts on communicating the right message, to the right audience, using the right vehicles, and always includes a feedback loop to gather reactions to both content and process. Sending the same message to everyone will not be sufficient. Keeping communication open throughout the project is also very important.ReferenceImplementing an Evidence-Based Practice Change by Gallagher-Ford, Fineout-Overholt, Melnyk, and Stillwell, from American Journal of Nursing (2011).https://lopes.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://gateway.ovid.com.lopes.idm.oclc.org/ovidweb.cgi?T=JS&CSC=Y&NEWS=N&PAGE=fulltext&AN=00000446-201103000-00031&LSLINK=80&D=ovft
