The Age of Instability
Step 1: Understand What’s Driving Change

The Age of Instability

The winds of change keep blowing harder. Hitting more people. Reshaping all kinds of organizations and altering how they operate.

Business, government, educational institutions, notfor-profit organizations, the military—you name it. Change, as far-reaching as it is rapid, is cutting across all sectors of the economy. All classes of society. All continents. All cultures.

Just think back over the past year. How many organizations expanded rapidly . . . revamped their their product lines . . . entered new markets . . . were acquired or merged . . . overhauled their systems and procedures . . . relocated to different facilities . . . installed new technologies . . . brought in a new management team . . . shut down some operations . . . tried to change their corporate culture . . . were deregulated . . . made sweeping budget cuts . . . or saw a change in ownership?
