They say that change is difficult. Apparently organisational change is even more fun. Mark links to McKinsey saying “Only a third of transformations of any kind were deemed very or extremely successful.”

Apologies for being pedantic but I don’t think change is difficult. Control is what’s difficult. People and organisations are changing all the time just not in the ways that some of us want.

I think a lot of boring discussions about “change management” would be more interesting if we looked at what demands are being made for obedience and why they’re not being met.
