Description of Change Tactics
Change Tactics works directly with organizations to create successful change. Our unique approach is utilizing the power of people that currently exists inside an organization. Solving a problem requires more than simply identifying the solution, it involves implementation and results delivery. Throughout the process of working with a client we apply organizational change management— the process of leading people through a planned change process. When change is planned the likelihood of success is twice as likely as unplanned change. Our product is not simply a report; it is an organization that performs better.
Bio for Scot Holliday, Ed.D.
I am the Founder & President of Change Tactics. I am an expert in organizational change management, sustainability, climate change, and energy. I serve as a change leader, advisor and researcher; depending on the need at hand. I work on a project-basis directly with companies, trade associations, government and not-for-profit organizations. I work independently with clients or jointly with other firms to provide broader services to clients, e.g. East Meets West Solutions [link]. Previously I served as a Senior Organizational Change consultant, both at IBM and Accenture.
I tailor solutions to meet each client’s needs. My recent projects have included developing a sustainability working group within a trade association, creating a tactical plan for the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative, developing an energy conservation program for multiple buildings & facilities, energy research for the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), and developing new business services for non-profit organizations.
I am based in the Washington, D.C. area. I earned a doctoral degree in Education, with a concentration in Human and Organizational Studies from The George Washington University. My doctoral research examined the role of organizational change in sustainability, using DuPont as a case study for empirical research. I serve as a contributing writer to the GreenBiz blog, Thomson Reuters Sustainability blog, and The Green Tie blog (National Association for Environmental Management). In 2013, my book was awarded book of the year by the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO). The book is titled, "Change Guidebook: How to Sharpen Your Approach to Leading Organizational Change", It is available on Amazon [link].
