Putting up this comic snippet shared by a friend that gives an interesting perspective into organizational inertia – how it is difficult to change the prevailing norms, values, beliefs and accepted patterns of behaviour.
More often than not, people who try to change the existing culture are deemed as misfits within an organization and are pulled down by the others.
Organizations that have been successful in doing things in a particular way, often tend to stick to the same way of working even after it becomes obsolete, since they are accustomed to it and so they resist changes that might help them to compete better.
At times it is perceived to be easier to change employees than to change their culture.
