Change and development
Change and development are two very common words in today’s society. Many individuals and organizations want to change and to develop. They are not satisfied with the way things are and would like to see a different, better reality. On one hand, our wishes to change are valuable because they show a tension between what is and what can be. Since the very beginnings of history, these wishes have been the very basis of our evolution. They have made society to what it has become today. On the other hand, despite our experience through the ages, we are apparently still struggling to realize successful and sustainable changes. You just have to look at all the well-meant change initiatives and development projects which are often aborted (too) early because they either created too little organizational support or didn’t create the desired effects fast enough.
