Abstract:

Many organisations do not change when they need to, nor do they change when they have to. If they did, fewer would fail. Like people, organisations, whether they are businesses or government departments, only change when they want to. Projects are embarked upon to bring about change and as such always involve a cultural shift-a new way of looking at things, adjustments to values and behaviours, even the abandonment of norms and sacred cows.
