Change Management Worst Practice

One change management mistake was to appoint a young, ambitious and energetic change manager to introduce a new strategic technology concept throughout a large consulting organization.
This change manager had a very strong drive for the innovation and was anxious to achieve progress quickly. So far so good it would seem. However he was impatient to make sure everybody was on the same page and involved, and did not take enough time in the beginning of the project to educate and convince the rest of the organization that the change was really important for its future. The result was that after some time the change manager and his small team were the only ones trying to achieve the strategic change, leaving the rest of the organization behind. Certain parts of the organization with an interest to maintain the status were successful in blocking the entire change effort.
