Abstract

A common assertion made about people who appear to be busy but who achieve very little, is that they are mistaking movement for action. Conservatism is a natural enough human impulse. Employees are inclined to be believe that organizational change is being forced on them for its own sake and they are likely, unless a convincing contradictory argument is made, to believe that what they are witnessing is movement to no purpose.
