Isn’t It Ironic?

Within a couple of days of posting the last blog post, The Pursuit of Perfection, a new and shiny opportunity came up.  It seemed like something that would be worth creating a whole host of new details and running around and changing things at the last minute — all the things that I was aware would stress people out.  Nevertheless, there’s a balance and responding to new situations is part of the balance.

Somewhere in one of the several things I have been reading recently about organizational culture and change management, I read the statement that change is more accepted when there is respect for existing roles and responsibilities.  Keeping that in mind while I made an (in the end futile) attempt to change the plans already in motion meant that at least this adidn’t do more damage than good.
