Wondering what has your change initiative stalled?  It could be one of the three killers of continuous self-renewal.  Take a look at this deadly lineup:

The first is the tendency of management teams to deny or ignore the need for a strategy reboot.  The second is a dearth of compelling alternatives to the status quo, which often leads to strategic paralysis.  And the third: allocational rigidities that make it difficult to redeploy talent and capital behind new initiatives (The Future of Management pp. 43-44).

Recognize any of these guys?  Wonder how many change initiatives they’ve killed off?  Pretty frightening how familiar they are.  After all, they’ve pulled this off in broad daylight!
