This technical note offers help for developing the management competence of capacity for change. We live in fast-moving times. Change is not waiting to happen; it is going on all the time, without stopping. For organizations, change is not a luxury, but a vital necessity. Companies must be capable of leading the way and implementing change. To do that they need to have a long-term vision and a clear strategy. And they need to have agents of change. Managers must be agents of change in companies; in other words, they must accept, internalize and promote change. Only then will they be able to put Kotter's famous "eight steps" into practice. Otherwise, companies' success will be short-lived, marked by discontinuity in leadership and mass layoffs. This technical note discusses ways to develop a capacity for change, that is, the ability to accept, internalize and promote change.
