The Manager of Change
The Manager of Change
The CPA Journal (a publication of the New York Society of CPA’s)
By Gregory F. Pashke, CPA
Identifying and dealing with rapid change is basic to the continued growth and profitability of all organizations. Change has become an integral part of the management process. We must accept change and continually strive to use it for our benefit or by default it will automatically work against us (either we manage it or it will manage us)!
The complexity of today’s (let alone tomorrow’s) world has radically increased our relative inter-dependency (individually, organizationally, nationally, internationally), most recently demonstrated by the devastating effect on the current world (and its future) by a heretofore unknown Iranian religious leader. But, constantly, there are numerous (although less dramatic) examples of social, political, economic and technological events that affect us all.
A research scientist most aptly reflected the acceleration of change affecting computer related products with “if it works, it’s obsolete” (something better is on the drawing board)! All this demonstrates the crucial need for the manager of the future – the “Manager of Change”. What are the attributes of the change manager that will distinguish him from his ancestral colleagues that have brought us contemporary society?
Change is here to stay! It must be dealt with! The future belongs to those managers who are not only able to cope with change but who are capable of initiating change in a positive, opportunistic and aggressive way! Can we develop ourselves and assist our clients to assume the required role?
