thanks for a useful link and an interesting perspective.

About 500 years ago, Machiavelli wrote the most insightful and far reaching quote on change. Its a pity that many people remember the quote, few remember his reasons.

"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more doubtful in its success, more dangerous in its execution, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. The innovator makes enemies of all those who prospered under the old order, and only lukewarm support is forthcoming from those who would prosper under the new. Their support is lukewarm partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the existing laws on their side, and partly because men are generally incredulous, never really trusting new things unless they have tested them by experience.” - Machiavelli

I recently wrote a post in response to John Kotter and Eric Brown on this topic. I'd be interested in what you think.

This means yes to avoid the mistakes of the Soviet past, when large projects were planned did not correlate with the economic costs and environmental conditions.
