Abstract:

The only constant in business today is change — change to organizational structure, technology, business processes, policies, budgets, and regulations — all in the name of progress. But change is not that easy. You cannot simply announce new initiatives or implement new ways of doing things within your organization and expect these concepts to be embraced and accepted. Change is a process that has to be managed. The critical action that ensures change occurs successfully is to engage the people who will help make the change happen. And that's the toughest part, as most often, it's not the change itself that causes failure, but the process of transition.
