  • Just for the sake of debate - let's focus on those making the changes rather than those resisting it. From an employee's perspective, why change something that appears to be working well? There may be very real issues in a company but too often change is just an attempt to be "doing something". Instead of presenting the solution, present the problem. Some excellent ideas have come from the "bottom".

  • I think the infographic brings up a great point about change goals needing to be realistic. End users expect the new work environment to be functional and accommodating to their day to day tasks; not to just be a visually appealing design. If the perception exists that the new space will NOT be functional, employee skepticism and resistance levels will certainly increase. If employees WILL be able to perform their tasks successfully in a new space, but in a way or work setting they are unfamiliar with today, communications need to begin early as to why the change is being made and the benefits of this new strategy.

  • Interesting remark of Mark, WIFFM, isn't that a bit old school 20th century thinking, how about looking for the real drives of employees and create contributions for society (win win)? To idealistic? I don't think so. What you now have eventually will go away. No matter what.

  • The core of the matter is the WIIFM question. change will only go 'smoothly' if each person affected understands 'what's in it for me'. Cool graphic but perhaps could include the perspective of those affected by the change - not just managers and supervisors.
