“Change is the only constant” - Heraclitus, Greek philosopher

Managing Organizational Change

You know that change needs to happen, but don’t know how to go about implementing it.  Most changes in organizations fail, due in part to employee resistance, lack of a clear vision, miscommunications and inconsistencies.  Effective change initiatives will most likely fail as a result of organizational resistance.  Companies, which are successful in implementing change, have a competitive advantage that can lead to greater organizational success, reduce negative impact of productivity and create excitement within the workforce.
