As situations alter and circumstances change, capabilities, processes, and working practices need to be reviewed. For many, change is an inevitable consequence of their roles and responsibilities. It may be both necessary and desirable, and the management of it has been a lucrative area for consultants. However, certain changes are more welcome and some people are much better at managing them than their peers. In some companies, managers may be assessed and rewarded according to the amount of change they bring about. However, directors, boards, and senior managers should tread warily as change can be disruptive and costly. It can distract people who should be focused upon other priorities.

Create a presentation for the senior leadership team that analyzes how organizational culture itself can be a barrier to change and how it can be a stimulant of change depending upon the organization. Analyze how communication can play a role in changing the organizational culture from one that poses barriers to change toward a culture that promotes and stimulates change. Evaluate whether rewarding managers according to the amount of change they bring about in the organization is a good practice or not. Explain the pros and cons to such a structure in order to assist in appropriate decision making by the senior leadership team.
