Most large organizations are complex systems with diverse employees in various markets. To stay competitive, they need to be adaptable, which requires change readiness at the systems level. This means leaders, managers, and employees need to be ready to adapt and respond to change quickly.

Change programs should be engaging, and policies and structures should be adaptable to new ways of working. The organizational culture should be open to new realities.

When an organization is ready for change, adaptation becomes a source of competitive advantage, and it becomes an unchanging feature of its identity. Senior leaders or managers must ensure their people are change-fit and their organizations change-ready to stay relevant in the competitive environment.
