Abstract :

Creating disturbance in a company’s equilibrium, commonly known as change process, is not only inevitable but also vital for its survival. Amending a successful change heavily depends on the recipient’s mindset, which paradoxically has a deep-seated need for stability and an almost instinctive resistance to change. While leaders are entitled to assess roadmaps and achieve operational goals for technology implementation, the human barrier to adoption and diffusion of innovative solutions remains largely unaddressed, which leads to missed cues to proper mindset for championing change. Employees’ sustainable change in behavior represents every company’s chance to succeed its change and transformation. This piece is a theoretical and personal point of view of how I would approach change in behavior. I attempted to explain my point of view using the farming analogy, comparing between crops and innovation, roads and trust, weather changes and crisis, rain and resources. This piece also states how a farmer thinks and how an employee should think to face any crisis, making him or her become more resilient in order not to avoid change but seek it. This article is a detailed introduction to a future study to be conducted testing several hypotheses described below.
