Change is inevitable. It is a recognized necessity in business, as it is in life. Fundamental changes to our regulatory systems, business models and management philosophies lie before us in a dynamic marketplace. In these challenging times, the most effective organizations will be those that are able to adapt and to respond to shifting priorities and changing business realities. But before this can happen, organizations need to understand how their employees are likely to deal with change (e.g. will they act as facilitators, obstacles or saboteurs?) and how they can be motivated to accept – and even embrace – change.
