The system of organizations is akin, if not alike, to the system of human beings – after all, organizations are made up of humans. Any development whether it is organizational change or self - development, requires a lot of effort and time. A successful organizational change can be rather challenging to accomplish – like trying to change a person’s habits. Depending on what change you are seeking, you can face a lot of resistance. When we state “development,” most of the managers perceive it as “training”. Training primarily focuses on bridging a skill or competency gap and that is just one aspect of development.When you ask someone about the developments they have had in the last twelve months, most employees will respond saying that they have attended a couple of workshops or seminars and that is the only development opportunity they have received.
