Are You Changing Fast Enough?

Are You Changing Fast Enough?

You’re either moving forward or backward, never standing still.

There are two types of soldiers on the battlefield: the quick and the dead. The same goes for business. You’re either moving forward or backward, but you are never standing still.

As the saying goes, “The future is something you create, not something that happens to you.” So, the question you have to ask yourself is this: Are you creating your future or are you sitting passively letting the future create you? In this context, the future is defined as your competitors, customers, marketplace and trends.

Change isn’t an issue of “will you” or "won’t you” — organizations have to change to stay alive; otherwise they’ll go the way of the dinosaur. The issue is will you change on your terms or be forced to change on your competitor’s terms. Being forced to change on your competitor’s terms is usually competitive suicide.

Any way you look at it, every organization is eventually going to spend money on change. The only questions are: when, how much, and will there be anything to show for it?
