Managing projects in a change-resistant culture

Great contribution today by Michael Wood on leading projects in a change-resistant culture.

The problem: "Firmly established [organizational cultures] tend to be resistant to change, especially if that change is going to impact: -Traditions and ways of doing that are deemed 'good' and 'right'."

Thinking it through, the responsibility shoud be on the project manager to make progress in the situation, and Wood suggests (as one approach) careful PM analysis and assessment of the culture to ensure that PM communciation is in synchronization with the culture to as great a degree as is possible.
