Replying to LO13177 --

Surely this one will be debated thoroughly be the list, so I'll be glad to
throw in my 2 cents...

My experience is that we first make the technological changes, the when
that doesn't work as well as expected or promised, work on the human side
of things. One reason might be is that around 80-90% of the mgmt ranks
around the world have a TJ (Thinking - Judging)preference, a la
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Their preferences won't naturally concern
themselves with the human side of change.

The challenge of our corporate management is not managing diversity, it is
managing sameness. The feeling and perceiving voices are not just silent
at the top - they are non existant.
