Awareness of a need for Change is one thing and the ability to enact it effectively is quite another. Rules, policies and procedures are only words. They do not make a change at work happen. In an organizational setting, all the humans are needed for solid outcomes. Effective and committed people are required at all levels.
Diktat is not enough, whatever politicians and boardrooms think. It’s easy to be decisive when the pain falls elsewhere, more so when being seen to ‘reorganize’ sends a signal (useless or not) that something is being done. However, doing something doesn’t guarantee sustainable Change.
