Reasons why so many changes fail

#12 Taking Time Will Waste Time

Our research found that when people made a strong case for change, the rest of the project often went much more smoothly. In other words, they didn’t face as much resistance, and things didn’t get off track as often. Even though you believe that you are facing a crisis, you need to ask,” Do others believe it is a crisis as well?” If not, you’ve got a long slog in front of you. And the odds are not in your favor.  (This is adapted from my completely revised  and updated book, Beyond the Wall of Resistance: Why 70% of Changes Still Fail – and What To Do About It.
