“The future is coming so fast, we can’t possibly predict it; we can only learn to respond quickly” are Steven Kerr’s words (a management guru in the University of Michigan business school). This inspiration is so true that it speaks for itself: Change management is inevitable. How effectively one can bring about change is the key to success and fast growth for organizations. Change management is one of the most important imperatives in today’s economic and global scenario. As the world gets flatter and more competitors line a confused and crowded marketplace organizations needs to fine tune and be in sync and adapt to the changes. The big challenge in creating tomorrow is not predicting tomorrow but the challenge is to predict which of those potential futures will actually materialize. I prefer small change over big change. Small transformations make it easy to check if what we want to happen actually happens, and how far off we are. It is also necessary to share the approach and plan of action. It is critical to get the buy in of the people involved in the change by addressing their concerns or issues.
