How to change the world

Change Management 3.0

It is one of the questions we get most often: How do I deal with my crappy organization? I like my work but I don’t like what our management is doing. How do I deal with it? Well, that’s easy. You have three options:

Ignore it. Changing organizations is hard work. If you don’t have the stamina to learn how to be a good change agent, then stop complaining about what’s bad. Accept that the organization is what it is, and enjoy the good parts of your work. In that case, you can stop reading here.

Quit your job. The only reason there are bad organizations is that people don’t quit their jobs. Do the world a favor and find a better place to work. Help bad organizations out of their misery by not working for them.

Learn about change management. Most people are terrible at influencing other people and changing organizations. But, if you’re serious about it, you can learn how to be a more effective change agent.

As one of our friends said, “It’s take it, leave it, or change it…”

Finished reading @jurgenappelo’s minibook on how to change the world. It’s highest value/cost ratio book I ever read.

Thank you for writing this booklet. Being a developer with no people skills ;), who’s facing an intimidating task of actually getting my organization to use better development methodology, this was clearly written and pretty invaluable.
