Managing Change in a Changing Environment

does one manage managing change? Can too much change not be change at all? (See blog about pushing change too fast). These are the questions that one has to ask themselves before attacking a problem and turning it radically around. I believe that too much change is not change at all because it leads you back to were you started off; in chaos. A leader has to tackle change step by step to avoid chaos. Personally I have a five step process to manage change in a changing environment to let change last as a long term achievement rather than temporary. The five steps are:

1. Identify the problem

2. Analyse what needs to be done or not to be done

3. Take one problem and fix only that problem

4. See if the change that you created can stand on itself without you being there

5. Then tackle the next problem

If you try to tackle all problems at the same times and make too much change, then you divide your time and energy into little parts and cannot possibly give your 100% into it. Whether it is homework, bringing up your grades, ending world hunger or poverty, one has to take one step at a time  to make an effective and long lasting change. Small changes lead to a bigger picture and eventually add up to big change or a movement. Try seeing your daily struggles, problems and changes this way and you will see a more positive and beneficial process.
