What are the Reasons for Change?

Why do we really need change in the first place? What are the sources / reasons for the need to change?

Reasons for Change

Nothing stays the same--nothing. Maybe similar, but each day is a new one with new variables--like another verse on an old song.
People don't like change for a variety of reasons, which we have exhausted here in this site. Managing change is needed to coordinate the change like a conductor leads an orchestra. You want all the players to play a melodious tune, not a bunch of noises.

Reasons for Change

Just to respond to Dan Kwof from Ghana: "Only a baby with a wet nappy likes changes" (unknown author). From this view, not all change pleases but can be needed by circumstances and often by the natural law of growth. Every human being deals with change during his lifetime.
The reasons for change could be: survival, growth, life improvement, betterment of welfare etc... They must be strong motives pushing to action leading to change.
So change could be led by a positive reaction to negative circumstance as well it could be a proactive action towards a desired result or in order to achieve a vision.
