Is there a single business that’s not going through significant change? I don’t know of one. In fact, Change seems to be the only constant there is in business. However, change isn’t about businesses, it’s about the people in those businesses. The best business strategy in the world will die on the vine if it doesn’t address individuals and their reality. No matter how well managed or how positive the change is perceived, you’ll rarely please everyone. Inevitably, some will react by simply disengaging while others may actively undermine the initiative because they can’t move from their entrenched positions. So how should we best manage people in these situations?

Imagine you’ve just convinced an investor to sink millions into your growing business. Then imagine, if after the finalising the deal, he gives you only one piece of advice. What do you think it would be? Increase sales revenue, improve gross margin or maybe keep costs under control?
