Naomi Moneypenny, executive editor at ManyWorlds.com, has penned a thoughtful blog post about four different ways that organizations typically react to change and new ideas.

Naomi Moneypenny, executive editor at ManyWorlds.com, has penned a thoughtful blog post about four different ways that organizations typically react to change and new ideas:

  • Not Invented Here: It didn’t come from us, so it isn’t any good
  • Already Invented Here: We already do whatever the ‘new’ thing and can’t learn from anyone else.
  • Analysis Paralysis: We’ll study the thing that might cause change to death, but never actually do anything about it.
  • Head in Sand and March Right On: What change? Why change? Our way or the highway…”

She also explains how to combat the first two types of thinking. Actually, this blog post is a preview of an article that Naomi is writing, which should appear on ManyWorlds.com in the next few weeks.
