I like this because it places people at the centre of the change and focuses on two way communication at all stages.

Torben,
Great piece of work!

The first three questions you pose are the prerequisites for change
1. Why is change necessary?
2. Is there a compelling reason for change?
3. How to build a business case for change?

The answer to all three is to describe what GOOD LOOKS LIKE compared with the current state.

The hard part is providing comparative compelling evidence of ‘what good looks like’.
