A friend pointed me to this New Yorker cartoon on change management. It says, "We're ready to begin the next phase of keeping things exactly the way they are."
It's exactly the kind of wry humor that belongs in The New Yorker. Of course, it also points to the reality of many organizations. For all the great reasons to change and motivational speeches, there are parts of the organization that would be happy staying just the way they are, thank-you-very-much.
