Change Management Resources : How to Make a Compelling Case for Change
Making a compelling case for change is the most important point in the life of a change — and the most neglected. Making a case is not just an intellectual exercise. People also need to feel the importance in their bones, and they need to trust the people delivering the information. When any of those are absent, people are likely to mutter:
- I don’t get it, or
- I don’t like it, or
- I don’t like you.
- And, in some cases, they may mutter all three.
