Organizational change does not come easy, however. Many organizational change efforts fail to reach their objectives. Why? Here are the most common reasons why change fails, and why company strategies don’t get successfully implemented.

There is a scene from the 1999 movie  The Matrix  where Morpheus offers Neo the blue pill or the red pill. If Neo takes the blue pill everything stays the same, and if he takes the red pill he falls through the rabbit hole and sees things like they really are.

Morpheus:  This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

With the rate of technological disruption and the global economy,  change is now the normal state of business . The blue pill is no longer an option!
