Bringing meaningful change to large organizations runs the gamut of tasks from the merely daunting to the seemingly impossible. Change agents face obstacles like convoluted processes, crushing governance structures, legacy systems, legal and regulatory requirements, and extreme risk aversion.
But all hope is not lost! Change and innovation are possible in large organizations, even with limited resources and the smallest teams. Obstacles like those from legal, privacy, and security departments can be made into allies. Processes can be hacked to provide useful results. And small, incremental improvements snowball to major change with time.
