  1. Create a sense of urgency

  2. Building a guiding coalition

  3. Form a strategic vision

  4. Enlist a volunteer army

  5. Enable action by removing barriers

  6. Generate short term wins

  7. Sustain acceleration

  8. Institute change

Bonus: Kotter's 8 Steps is one of five widely adapted change models. Included in this Miroverse template is an overview of the key steps in the other change models as Lewin, McKinsey 7 Steps, Nudge Theory and Adkar.
