Charter for Managing Change

  • Klaus Doppler

When organizational changes are called for, there are plenty of intelligent people — top decision-makers and qualified specialists, as well as expensive advisers — who seem to think the job has been done once they have laid the necessary plans on the table. The greatest care and attention is given to the tasks of analysis and developing concepts, and usually most of the time involved is spent on these as well — so that the incubation period can take months, or sometimes even years. Finally, when the wisp of white smoke at last emerges from the holy of holies, there is a rush to put all these plans into practice — and then people wonder why something that has been so professionally produced, and which looked so logical on paper, does not work out in practice.
