This article by David Chaudron starts with a fun parable about three villages trying to build a bridge across a chasm and why two of the three villages fail. The bridge represents the creation of change. It is an interesting (and brief!) explanation of some of the obstacles to organizational change and, as someone who is often working to help implement change, it is good to have some of the pitfalls pointed out. The biggest challenge that resonated with me is that we often start trying to implement changes without having a clear idea of the big picture and what we are trying to achieve. It lays out some pointers that I will take into consideration before my next major project!
