Change Management


Why Change?

  Change  is a constant requirement and our need, as citizens of the world, to change our lives, thinking, habits and values are always under attack. We all baulk at wanting to change, and are pleased if the other party or neighbour changes their position but in reality we all have to change all the time.

In the business world change is instigated and driven by many, sometimes conflicting, elements including :

  • market forces

  • new opportunities

  • customer demands

  • competition

  • resource challenges

  • new technology

  • process inefficiencies 

  • financial constraints

  • economic down / up turns

  • communication;

  • interpersonal skills;

  • leadership and management;

  • conflict resolution;

  • personal confidence, attitudes and motivation;

  • performance management;  as well as

  • preparation for a new role or promotion

There is nothing new about change, humans have faced and handled change for centuries.

Heraclites the Greek philosopher commented that

'Nothing is permanent but change'.


Winston Churchill said that.

'To improve is to change, to be perfect is to change often'.

Socrates, the Greek philosopher, created the law of Cause and Effect. He stated that if there is a cause or a reason then that would cause an effect somewhere else.

The Law of Cause and Effect says that everything happens for a reason. For every effect in your life, there is a cause, or series of specific, measurable, definable, identifiable causes.

Consider the ripple effect from throwing stones into a fish pond. There is not just a big splash but also waves and then ripples on the surface of the water that reach from the centre to the edge in seconds.

So change is nothing new. However the amount and rate of change appears to be increasing making the need for effective change management skills more important. 

Change is not new
