keep hearing so often how we must change our structures – change our
organizational, institutional way of being – because the structures of
the organization are failing us.
I don’t have a problem with
organizational change, but it is too easy to believe that the problem is
with the structure itself. Sometimes it is, but more often than not the
problem comes down to the people inhabiting the structure! The problem
WE have to change, and if we do change the old
structures may well work just fine. If we don’t change within ourselves,
all the restructuring in the world will make little difference!
