Management and agility (series)

In the previous articles, I expose the management issues that I have encountered and give you my insight and feedback that led to the development of ZAPPIK method.

Articles of the series:



This article tells you why resistance to change threatens your innovation projects. The psychological processes at work are finally easy to understand. I explain them in my book detailing ZAPPIK method.

Problem # 2: resistance to change

Do you believe that your team members have more time available than you?


The answer is probably NO !


And what do employees who have put in place their work method and who are disturbed?


They resist!


It is a well-known attitude, normal, and perfectly identified.

If one does not give the means and an immediate benefit to an employee to modify his planning and his methods, failure is assured.

Modifying work methods requires training time, an involvement process and proven beneficial results.

I have been confronted with this situation and have come to the conclusion that in an enterprise we can not change the internal functioning when there is no concrete example of the benefit to apply changes.

You can not disturb the current teams, so you have to isolate the problem.


The only solution is to develop your new projects outside your company teams : outsourcing is the key.


The goal is to provide the proof by the result that changing the method is more efficient.

It will be necessary to recruit a team trained in the new methods and technologies envisaged and put it to work alongside the existing teams.

The lack of time comes back to the fore

The question of the lack of time available in the manager's planning to put all this in use comes back in force.

How to handle all this in addition to his stack of tasks, appointments and business trips?

The cost is a major barrier

It's also a question of budget. Recruiting is expensive in time and on budget.

It will be necessary to mobilize technical means to welcome these new team members and train them to your company, your products, your customers...

This is a hard decision to take, especially since you are absolutely not sure of its success.
