I’m developing content around increasing collaborative capability in organizations and I’ve observed something.
We resist change because it involves additional work and there’s a risk of failing because of a lack of follow-through on implementation – which is where “flavor of the month” and the like come from.
Do we resist change because we attempt too much at one time? For example, what if when we increase the collaborative capability of an organization, we focused on one intersection at a time in our organization to increase collaboration through the application of new collaborative skills and behaviors? Would JOT increase our odds of following-through on implementation?
