These conflicts have profound sociological and cultural symptomology and impact these organizations in ways that are poorly appreciated and understood. They will not be resolved at the content or technical level - they need to be understood and addressed as the change management and cultural transitions that they actually are.
The Moment You Can’t Ignore is a great guide to how to recognize and resolve these conflicts before they derail the process of institutional change that these institutions - and most companies - desperately need to make in a rapidly evolving world. A very readable translation of theory to real-world examples and practice.
