Sometimes design is about effecting change. So here’s John Kotter’s very useful change model – From his book Leading Change

  1. Establish a sense of urgency
  2. Form a powerful guiding coalition
  3. Create a vision
  4. Communicate the vision
  5. Empower others to act on the vision
  6. Plan for/create short term wins (communicate them)
  7. Consolidate improvements and accelerate change
  8. Institutionalize new approaches

Executive support and involvement is required to effect change. Specifically with steps one through three.
