Bruce Kestelman, March 17, Well Done!
Especially like the connection with resistance and the organizational culture. The embedded PPT provides helpful reminders about what to avoid. Stefan Norrvall, March 22, There are also some strong arguments against this view of planning for resistance to change.
Firstly, the use of change resistance model that is based on how individuals cope with bereavement and that has not been tested for use in organisational change.
Furthermore, it is a model of personal emotions and does not take into account managing large-scale change with groups of people. It also projects a sense of victimisation of staff that have change done to them and there is nothing they can do about it. Organisational change and the loss of a loved one are not the same.
Secondly, by assuming resistance to change in advance there is also the issue of creating the situation it predicts which further reinforces the need to address resistance to change.
The issue is the confusion of cause and effect — resistance is not the cause of failure, it is the outcome of failure. Having worked in countless organisations I have not yet come across one where change was not desired.
In some they spoke about change fatigue and what a hard job it would be to get them to change. It turned out to be the complete opposite — they were tired of all the initiatives that did not change anything. Milad Avaz, March 22, Great article Torben, However I fear that it is trending to consider resistance as a unilateral holistic thing when it is actually comprised of resistance to smaller things that the general change might be representing.

Change will frequently impact on the personal aspirations of people with power and influence at some level. Only a part of this will be visible at the outset and the change leader must be vigilant to detect the direct and indirect signs as the change project proceeds.
This does not necessarily mean they will resist change. Stefan Brian Chajewski, March 26, I enjoyed the article and the conversation that it has started.
I agree that change needs to have a clearly communicated value statement and the endurance to see the training through.
I have experienced massive organizational changes that were communicated well, money was spent to provide good training up front, and the employees felt like there was money being spent to train them.
Then after the roll out, there was continual support and if need be, a person that has mastered the new process was flown to the site struggling for a week long of side-by-side mentoring.
I have also experienced the massive change that has a lot of fan fare. A lot of up front training. Then the new system was unreliable and employees had to do a hybrid of old system and new system just to get through, which is not as efficient as doing either one.
Also, the system was designed to identify if a service failure had occurred, but the procedures were never rewritten to account for this new data.
This leaves the employees disillusioned about the information that can be provided by the change in systems. When an employee can adapt to the change in systems and see the information of how it is not a service failure, but still has to act like it is a service failure, it is very frustrating and leaves them asking what is the point of the change if the company will not let them use the information.
