Why most change management processes fail. Learn it from Dilbert!

Marcelo Mello

fantastic post!!!

I think this is the best analysis I have read in a long time, it all comes down to thrust, a system were people are allowed to be treated as people, and a management system that support employees, not work against them.

It is time to speak heart to heart instead of head to head (Norman Drummond)

Norman Dale

I think it's a huge leap to see how widely enjoyed Dilbert is to inferring that its "success reflects the fact that so many people find themselves in similar work environments and find themselves seemingly powerless to do anything about it." The cartoon like others such as the old Dagwood and Blondie in the 50s or Peanuts resonates because of a kernel of truth at which we can chuckle not an accurate mapping of reality. To try to turn this into some big life lesson with homilies about intervention for social change is something that Scott Adams and the Dilbert gang could probably have a lot of fun with.

I think you've hit the nail on the head - as you so often do! The comment about treating people as things reminded me of a time long ago when I was trying to explain to a group what "human resources" meant (and I was an HR professional then), and someone said quite simply that he objected to being considered a resource, like a lump of coal!

Dear Viagra Online,

It's easy to be cynical and sit on the sidelines and mock anyone who has the temerity to try to change the soul-destroying world of the modern workplace. Scott Adams himself does quite a bit of that. But if we are ever going to make something worthwhile out of brief existence in this world, we actually need to get off the sidelines and help change it.

Hope you will join me.
