Overcoming Resistance? The Rapid Results Method by Schaffer

I have recently come across the interesting "Rapid Results" method of implementing change by Robert H. Schaffer ('Rapid Results!' (2005)). A Rapid Results project, in short, is an adrenaline-charged change, fast-moving, exciting, energizing, and ultimately transforming process.
An Rapid Results project tackles large-scale change efforts through a series of small-scale, results-producing and momentum-building initiatives.
The Rapid Results process unleashes and enhances implementation capacity. It also translates intent into action to achieve results within a short period of time (75-100 days).
The benefits of the Rapid Results methodology include overcoming resistance to change and creating a driving force for change. It also accelerates learning and discovery and reduces hidden risks inherent in long-term strategies.
RR projects are small pilot efforts that need to be carefully selected and designed to meet the following key criteria:
1. Focuses on an important goal.
2. Produces a measurable stretch result.
3. Works in the short term.
4. Pinpoints clear accountability.
5. Drives experimentation.
6. Is planned and disciplined.
7. Makes learning a deliberate outcome.
