Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
there are a couple of things about getting organizational buy-in that keep us from actually doing it:
It takes time. In some cases, a lot of time. So we have to be patient when creating buy-in.
Buy-in requires us to know our audience incredibly well. We have to communicate the message the way the audience wants to receive it.
These are the concerns top managers (and everyone else) have with buy-in.
People will ask, “Has everyone bought in?” without giving the process enough time. Or they say, “We need to get buy-in.” without thinking about how the message is being delivered.
Individuals want buy-in but they don’t always want or have the means to make buy-in happen.
And in fairness, it’s not always the manager’s fault. Companies might decide to impement a new policy or procedure and and look for management to get buy-in for the change. But they often don't provide the time or the resources to create buy-in.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
