Understanding Change in the Workplace
Management must not be merely be ready to change but constantly seeking change. What works today may not work tomorrow. What is a good deal today will be too expensive tomorrow.
How comfortable is your routine?
There is often resistance to change. Humans love routines. Routine gives order and enables us to predict what will happen next. As a result we tend to dislike, resist and avoid change while most organisations struggle in time of change because of the people involved. Therefore an organisation’s people are likely to be the defining factor in whether the transition is successfully carried out.
