"Change often strikes a chord of fear in an organization" wrote The Business Journals' Kathy Close in her recent article titled 'Why a formal game plan is critical for change management initiatives'. Change can indeed seem daunting. But is it really change itself that people are afraid of, or rather the uncertainty it brings?
The Harvard Business Review (HBR) has recently published an article that really resonated with what we at OrgMapper believe in, as it focused on how "leadership development and change management tend to be top priorities for many organizations." But then again, we all know that over two thirds of all change initiatives fail (approx. 70%). It's somewhat of a Catch-22 situation, because even though more and more organizations are putting greater emphasis on change management, they are still falling short.
