Resistance to Change

Two interesting things in the recent P.W. Singer book Wired for War that apply equally to business.

"Those vested in the current system, or whose talents and training might become outdated by new technologies, will fight any change that threatens to make them obsolete or out of work, or in anyway harms their prestige." p 252

""If you dislike change, you're going to dislike irrelevance even more." General Eric Shinseki, former U.S.Army chief of staff. p 254
