Quotes on change

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.

-He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery – Harold Wilson

-The rate of change is not going to slow down anytime soon. If anything, competition in most industries will probably speed up even more in the next few decades – John P. Kotter

-An organisation’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage – Jack Welch

– However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results – Winston Churchill
