A Project Manager's Guide to Change Management | AQA Business BUSS4 - Managing Change & the External Environment | Scoop.it

Change management is the process of planning, implementing and monitoring a shift from one state or process to a supposedly better state or process. The fast-paced changes in the external business environment force almost all organizations to adopt change management on a regular basis, in an effort to catch up with the changed paradigms of doing business, or seize emerging opportunities.

The interchangeable parts is the one that stood out for me. It does not mean we are disposable, rather it means we have flexibility and can move into the foreground and background as necessary.

...and it takes time.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 29, 2013 9:31 AM

(From the article): Look, as a leader, you set the tone for how your employees experience large-scale change. You could be the one that enables fearless (but informed) innovation and experimentation – or you can be the one holding up the instruction book saying, “That’s not how we do it.” The choice is yours.

John Wade: pragmatic support for law firm leaders's curator insight, August 18, 2013 6:17 PM

It's quite astonishing in this age of 'enlightened' leadership, when management learning abounds in abundance, that some managers persist on using a 'one-size fits all' approach. People, including Leaders and Managers, deserve better...

 

Whilst this article focuses on the Blanchard One-Minute Manager or Situational Leadership Model, and on those presumed prerequisites, the principles apply across all leadership and management activities. I'm a huge fan of Blanchard and his approach - indeed, have used it for the last twenty-five years in my employed career, my consulting and interim business, and my coaching business. His model gives managers and staff alike a structure and language to talk about issues, style, needs and development.

 

Which makes it a shame that more than half of the managers surveyed don't (can't?) adapt to meet the way their people need help...

Organic food – What is an ‘organic’ label really worth?

Organic food – What is an ‘organic’ label really worth? | AQA Business BUSS4 - Managing Change & the External Environment | Scoop.it

uly 12, 2013 Ethical Corporation

Supermarkets in North America and Europe are overflowing with organic-labelled fruit, vegetables, eggs and meats. More than 80 countries have organic standards and products carry one or more of 200 seals, logos and certification claims.

But are consumers able to make informed choices? What’s the real ethical impact of “buying organic”? The answers are murkier than you might think.... http://www.ethicalcorp.com/supply-chains/organic-food-%E2%80%93-what-%E2%80%98organic%E2%80%99-label-really-worth

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:33 PM

After reading this article and having worked at a organic farmers market, i do not believe everything labeled as "organic" can all be 100 percent accurate. Although many are certified or classified as being organic i do not believe what the organic companies are trying to sell us. Makes me as an individual believe what is going on in the world, where you cannot trust what is being put down your mouth. Obviously a person has to eat but what exactly are they eating is the proper question. Certainty an eyebrow raising situation i believe everything is a scam. People will pay for something that is labeled as "organic" which only profits the business and is all about money, rather then be as a positive interest to an individual.

Hannah Goble's curator insight, September 9, 2015 10:29 AM

More major food corporations are getting organic foods.

Finding new ways to industrialize the organic foods.

Looking to remove bad chemicals.

Also looking to keep pest out of the crop.

Looking to how it can be better for the eco system.

How humans can benefit from the farming.

What climate have a better effect on the organic farming.

Adjusting the farming with global warming to still grow good foods.

How it can make a better diet without having to watch eating size.

 Understanding the soil and how it is fertilized.
