To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
– Winston Churchill
Change is the most important element of successful business today.In order to remain competitive in increasingly aggressive competition and frequevent market changes , organizations and each individuals have to adopt a positive attitude to change .
Ignoring or minimizing a change trend can be costly, we need to teach managers how to be a step ahead of rivals, identifying the type of change and driving the process.

As long as the change for improvement could be approached with existing resources strategic change must have a totally new methodology.

It is vital to identify correctly the sources of change in order to be able answering initial questions: why we need to change, what we have done wrongly, why I am ma guilty, what it will happen to me and so on.
If we want to have a smother process it is extremely important to start with professional plan in detail and effectively communicating to the organization each step and the organization impact.
Equally important it is not to forget that people are resistant to change because they are afraid. Also, they are afraid because they do not understand. They do not understand because they need time to move from the initial phases of shock, passive resistance, active resistance to later acceptance. During this process the visibility of management team in organization must be at a high level.
Also, do not forget it does not matter how much you communicate in this period if you are not focus enough how you effectively communicate. Lastly but lees important it is the expressed empathy which is more valuable for affected people than even a bonus!
