It is a fine line between engaging the troops and spooking the horses when your organisation is faced with significant change. I have been involved in a number of transitions, mergers and acquisitions and it really can be a scary time for teams. Maintaining a positive organisational culture is key to change success.

Increasingly our internal and external communications are being bogged down in unnecessary systems and processes. Processes that are outdated but we that cling to out of misguided loyalty or organisational hoarding.
