Viral Change

Does Viral Change really work?

Viral ChangeTM is a proven methodology that works really well in real life situations. Viral Change utilizes the power of internal networks (of connection and influence) and focuses on the spread of new non-negotiable behaviours. This spread is similar to ‘an infection of ideas’ or a fashion or a fad, with the difference that here it is engineered and controlled.

Business Digest interviewed two industry leaders – Philip Watts of Pfizer and Pierre Morgon at Schering-Plough – about their successful experiences with Viral Change in their organizations.

Why is Viral Change different than other change management programmes?

Traditional change management programmes rely on the concept of ‘communication to all and involvement of all people’, usually through presentations, training and other linear mechanisms to convince people they need to change from ‘A’ to ‘B’. But very often, many people are not convinced and continue to stick with ‘A’, and the change management process fails.

Viral Change uses a small set of non-negotiable behaviours which is spread by a small number of people through the internal social networks of influence. Viral Change has shown that this ‘infection’ has the power to create sustainable change faster and longer lasting.
