|It's human nature to become
comfortable with set patterns and
ways of doing things. We all have

require that organizations
continually re-invent themselves
simply to survive. Even the most
well-planned strategies require us

reorganization are constant
features of today's workplace.
Plans do not go according to

depleted, and long-held ideas are
challenged by new data and
circumstances. We must exhibit
the essential ability to improvise
