Doesn’t matter what kind of change you’re bringing into the world, it odds on that you’ll be blatzed with three kinds of resistance.
Organisational gotchas that get-ya – doing new things means changing things that have been working up until now. And the thing about things that work … everything else had been made to fit around them. So changing this bit means changing that bit. And that’s a bigger job than it seemed. And some of those bits push back.
The technology – either it’s not ready or it’s difficult to integrate or it puts a strain elsewhere or it’s a narrow throated bottleneck or we don’t know the how of the who of what to do with it.
The human – anyone who helped create or is dependent on the current way is likely to run interference. Not always, but often.
