Changing an Organization Implies Headaches
claudio pizzi, Business Consultant, Argentina
Hello Allan, it's a pleasure to talk with you about this topic as a colleague. I think we have 3 very hard reasons:
- First, employers earn money using this system of thinking, what is the reason to change it? They can't see the opportunity cost
due to their mental models.
- Second, they are afraid to lose the power to control things.
- Third and last, not everyone wants to have a great company. Owners lives well, change an organization implies headaches with employees, suppliers, customers, with all. Not all employers are willing to take risks once they have achieved a good standard of living.
For example, we commonly put our lives at risk when traveling by plane without knowing the conditions and capabilities of the pilot, but we are not capable to take risks in our business, itís funny how humans make decisions, is not it?
