Organisations must embrace change and adapt to the ‘new normal’ of constant change.
The pervasiveness of advancing technology is one of the key drivers of intense levels of change, requiring businesses to adapt and evolve.
Levels of uncertainty and change are at an all-time high. The force of this change on businesses causes the requirement for constant adjustment and realignment of capabilities and mindsets to succeed within the continuously evolving ‘new normal’.
Below, we share a few quotes on change that may provide a little encouragement to anyone managing people through change.
