    About change

    Organizations don’t change. People change. Many companies move to change systems and structures and create new policies and processes but fail to address the underlying mind-sets and capabilities of the people who will execute it.

    A new strategy will fall short of its potential if they fail to address the mental attitude because people on the ground tend to continue to behave as they did before.

    Looking both ways

    Companies that only look outward in the process of organizational change, and dismiss individual learning and adaptation make two common mistakes:

    • They focus solely on business outcomes and fail to appreciate that people will have to adapt to implement it.
    • They focus too much on developing skills.
