Change was once a discrete event with a beginning, middle and end. At the end things got back to “normal.”
But today, change is a constant; multiple changes can happen simultaneously with no normal in sight. Changes can take companies – and the people in them – toward a successful future, into a limbo of change for changes’ sake, or into oblivion.
