Whatever approach an organization chooses to drive change – Re-engeneering, TQM, Continuous Improvement, Employee Empowerment, Team Building, – chances are, after initial success, results will fizzle. “Many organizations are wasting millions of dollars on programs designed to manage change instead of finding creative breakthroughs that can focus energy and lever what’s truly important.”
