Organisational Change Training – Change or Die
In a Fast Company article some years ago, Alan Deutschman coined the phrase “Change or Die”. He cited medical studies which showed that 90% of patients who had undergone heart surgery did not subsequently change their lifestyles. Change, it seems, is not so attractive even when our lives depend on it.
Currently, many businesses are facing the same difficult choice, making organisational change training essential . Multiple sectors are being impacted by radical disruptions which threaten their products, services and prevailing business models. The car industry, for example, is striving to make sense of innovative battery technology, autonomous driving, car sharing and big data. Any one of these factors is disruptive but all of them emerging together brings major questions for the existing brands.
Reorganising, downsizing, right-sizing, merging and partnering are all on the agenda not only in the car industry but in many established industry sectors.
Organisational change is not new but the scale of the coming changes is likely to be unprecedented. As a result, agility and resilience at work are already emerging as key attributes for leaders and employees in the 21st century and will become even more important in the years to come.
