Why climb the mountain of change?

Nobody wants to change just because there is a possibility to change. It is important to know that the change is necessary and that the situation after the change will be better than before.

Perhaps then people a ready to climb the mountain. Look and view through the possible perspective of your employees.

Thank you Mr. Goldratt.


Let me introduce to you the formula of change!

A really nice video which introduces to you change management, from its nearer historic basements up to a formula of dependency that shows if there is a chance for a successful change.

You got to see it!

Paul Brown starts his video by saying: “Change is about surviving!!” He begins with important persons and theories which are important for our understanding of change management today.
He states that all of those theories are relative and depends on thousands of different factors. So the next theory could be about business change, business relatvism or business pragmatism.

So why change? We or our organizations got to change because our Environment is changig. There are

  • new products
  • new competitiors
  • changed consumer tastes
  • shifting socio-political economic cultural Frameworks
  • advanced technologies and
  • new emergent markets.

The earlier we recognize the need for change the greater ist the number of options for successful change is.


Change Formula

D * V * F > R

  • Dissatisfaction
  • Vision
  • First
  • Resistance

The product of the dissatisfaction of your employees, the vision of what is to expect with and without not changing and those first actions which have been taken to induce the change got to be bigger than the resistance of the orginization and its employees working in it to have a chance for a successful implementation of change.


Thank you Mr. Brown.


The problem of change

Gavin Wedell made a cute little video that explains that there is a need to change, but it is hard to handle it.

In our globalized world oganizations have to deal with continually shifting:

  • Market conditions
  • Customer demands
  • Technologies
  • Input costs
  • Competition

So organizations have to readapt their business models. But there is a problem with change: “[…] people who have been doing things a certain way for a long time […]”, do not want to do things differently.

To manage change successfully Gavin Wedell recommends

  1. Communicate the threat of not changing
  2. Involve your Team in decision makin (when possible)
  3. Minimize uncertainty
  4. Celebrate successes in moving towards the goal
  5. Keep explaining the reasons to change
  6. Be as transparent as possible

Thank you Mr.. Wedell!
