  5. “Most Change initiatives fail. Two independent studies carried out in the 1990s, one published by Arthur D Little, and one by McKinsey and co found that out of the hundreds of corporate Total Quality Management (TQM) programmes studied, about two thirds grind to a halt because of their failure to produce the hoped for results. Reengineering has fared no better… and even without knowing the statistics most of us know firsthand that change programmes fail… This failure to sustain significant change recurs again and again despite substantial resources committed to the change effort”. Peter Senge “The Dance of Change”
