Organizational Change Must Be Slow and Incremental
Leslie Leckie, Member
Change in organizations should be slow and incremental in order to be really effective. This is applicable regardless of the approach used.

Gradual Organizational Change
Falabi, Member
Many changes have been more successful only when they were planned as a gradual, slow, steady and long term project. Kaizen will work for me.

Bottom up Organizational Change is Slow
Michelle Robledo, Member
I agree, using the bottom up approach change is slow and incremental. You begin with the lower level staff and work up to senior management. The changes become a part of the organization's culture, and principles.

Even Slow, Incremental and Bottom up Changes Have to Start at the Top
Jagdish B Acharya, Premium Member
To be successful, changes must start from top (top-down approach).
If the top does not believe that by bottom-up changes things will improve, then the change is likely to fail miserably.
Often changes forced by bottom are termed revolutions and may result in turmoil and chaos.

Top Leadership Must Be Committed and Seen to Be Behind the Change
Maimon Arif, Member
@Jagdish B Acharya: I agree to your view. Indeed, the change movement has to start from the bottom up AND the top must provide support, sandwiching the middle management, which is often the most difficult group to accept change!
