Organizational inertia

Change is in the air for dNYel's GP programme. At least we're starting to think about it, seeing that the employment environment has changed significantly. Like it or not, we're still in the business of cranking out economic workers, except that now our economy has moved from assembly-line manufacturing to knowledge management, creativity and service. Likewise, we're looking at our production model and making decisions about how best to modify working systems and overhaul obsolete ones.

No specifics as yet. Too many people have too many different opinions on how to proceed. There will be changes made in the coming weeks, but I hope that in an effort to please everyone it won't become 'the more things change, the more they stay the same'.

We'll take all the ideas, evaluate our options and eventually whittle them down into a workable strategy. That's the nature of an organization. Change may be slow, but if it is in the right direction, that's all that matters.

The J1s have an opportunity to do it different next year. How different? That's still left to be seen.
