Companies constantly start change initiatives and frequently results never match-up with their objectives. Why?

the 5 stages in the change curve are: 1) stagnation, 2) preparation, 3) implementation, 4) determination, 5) fruition

Took me a while to move through this one. Describes a change model and emphasizes communication and building engagement. It was OK, but not really groundbreaking.

Great read on a little-talked about part of major, organizational-wide change: the emotional affects. Well worth reading if your organization is stagnating and an overhaul is on the horizon.
