But we told them that, it will definitely take some time in doing all these but later it will be more easy to access and keeping an on future if you take this big decision then that’s cool.
Talking about this it reminds of one instance,
One of our executive went to bank there few people operating the data with different software and most of them were using different one.
" So, he enquired, why there is a difference in usage of softwares? He said I have been using this since a very a long time and now bank brought some changes and introduced new software. So those who learned new one are the fewer bunch and they are accessing it. But including me most of my colleagues are using the older and we got used to it hence it’s more easy to handle the data with the old one. "
Here, the larger crowd is not ready to accept the new changes and still continue doing the old tedious work. On the other hand fewer guys chose to adapt the new change and operating the system to make their work less lengthy.
People often tend to escape the new challenges. This is called escapism where people don’t accept that there is a problem and it need to be resolved and to solve this they need to learn operation of new software. Where they have to put efforts so they simply escape by saying no it’s new to us and we are accustomed to it so, we will work on same old system.
" Remember the painful speech of Nokia CEO where he spoke about, World changing too faster than them. Nokia, couldn’t change themselves with the time, couldn’t learn, so missed the opportunity of being getting bigger and not only that, they got out from the race of survival. "
We all know why it happened and it is a big lesson for all of us. When the competitive world around us is changing then why we should not change our business system that could save more of time for being more productive.
