In The Washington Post, op-ed columnist Michael Kinsley writes that Americans are favorable to change in theory, but they don’t like it in practice.
This is probably true of all nations in the world and of all groups of professionals. Change management experts are among the worst in refusing to change themselves. This is the reason why we argue in favor of change management. Change management experts, more than any other group in society, understand that large scale change, in ways that we do not entirely embrace as individuals, will only come about if we start a large scale change program. We are really not very good at changing things on our own.
