Will reorganizing every two weeks lead to stable software processes? What conditions would enable this to happen? When should we schedule the next change?
Several years ago I found out that I was not really in charge of everything, or in control of very much. This lead me to
Don’s Dismal Dilemma: How will I achieve my goals, when I’m not in charge or control?
“Change quotients” prompted one particular thought – since I’m usually the person recommending a change, I tend to be more sensitive to lower quotients than mine. Yet, I do recall one organization which had an intrinsic change quotient which apparently exceeded mine – they reorganized every two weeks, more or less. 🙂
Some wag said, “The only person who likes change is a wet baby.” Another favorite is “Everyone likes change, when someone else is doing it.”
If change is so inevitable, why do people, teams and organizations experience so much difficulty changing? We should be good at it!
