You want me to embrace strategic change? I'll do it but I'll feel like such a tramp.

In my last job the senior management hired a team of counselors to help the supposedly bad employees cope with the new changes that were about to be implemented. The ironical thing was that most employees ended up seeing the counselors as the change management was so poor that the employees needed support from somewhere which only validated the views of management that employees couldn't cope with change.

"Why has no one in that office gone postal on the PHB yet? ..."

AFAIR Alice has already killed him once - this is PHB Vs 2.0, imported from a parallel universe. We need him! - Dilbert World would be much less funny without him

If the strategies made sense then the company would lose it's deniability when it does all those immoral things that it will do as a part of the noted change... of course one could argue the case that the company could just not do immoral things but.... considering the type of people that rich investors tend to be, I wouldn't rely on the change ever occurring.


An organization is made up of people and so changes that do not have buy-in from the employees should be considered and implemented very carefully. Often such changes which do not have buy-in from the employees is often not in the interest of the company but is just the result of some "genius" manager who does not understand what his employees actually do.

>> I maybe with PHB on this one - Employees always see
>> what is good for them and not the organization.
>> Change of any kind is hard to push, because it is
>> more work for everyone.

So, PHB is not an employee who sees what's good for him?
