Claude Emond's insight:

Tells a good story of a disastrous change management approach and explains why it failed. Alas, this story is a universal one and I still do not understand why most people «managing» changes still insist on doing the same mistakes over and over again. You just cannot decide for anybody when, how and how much they will change; they will just fight you back !...as you will do yourself if someone tries this «change recipe» on you, right ?

Our Projects Are Our Journey and Our Life

Our Projects Are Our Journey and Our Life | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
“I believe we were born to be happy and that all the projects we realize together in our collective journey can AND MUST contribute to a greater happiness for all of us.”

 All projects carry the same complexity and issues as any individual or collective endeavor in our lives. Our projects are our journey, and our life.This is a compass we bought recently for our 5-year-old granddaughter Stéphanie. We will save it until she is ready to go out on her own. The inscription is the most important piece of advice we can share to guide her on the many projects that will come and go the rest of her life.   
Projects, be they business or personal matters, all follow the same patterns.

How to Create Customer Engagement by Providing a Unique Experience

How to Create Customer Engagement by Providing a Unique Experience | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
In our saturated marketplace and overload information era, it is harder and harder to make personal connections and engage with customers. Customers are never more than a text, search, tweet, post or question to Google or Siri away from finding another option to fulfill their needs if you can't get it done. Same process if they're just not having the experience with you that they expected.
