From Here to There: Effectively Managing Organizational Change
Wick, Casey J.
Facilities Manager, v24 n6 p28-32 Nov-Dec 2008
Throughout organizational history it has been witnessed and written of time and again just how difficult initiating and leading change, as it relates to human behavior, can be. Initiating and implementing organizational change can be, and very often is, a journey characterized by periods of temporary progress followed by slow regression back to old habits and operating practices. Countless challenges and barriers rooted in individual and group perceptions lay around each and every bend in the road to effective and lasting changes. More importantly, the journey of organizational change is one in which the pressure influencing change can shift rapidly and without warning making the destination seem unattainable. Fortunately, with firm commitment and thorough planning, the initiation and implementation of pressure-driven changes can be successfully made within an organizational setting. In this article, the author explains how commitment and thorough planning can lead to successful changes within an organizational setting. (Contains 6 notes.)
