“One must bear in mind that 1/2 of organizations won’t believe the connection between how they manage their people and the profits they earn.
1/2 of those who do see the connection will do what many organizations have done – try to make a single change to solve their problems, not realizing that the effective management of people requires a more comprehensive and systematic approach.
Of the firms that make comprehensive changes, probably only about 1/2 will persist with their practices long enough to actually derive economic benefits.”
