"As managers when we've gone through reorgs they tend to be so painful and difficult to pull off that by the time we finish the reorg, all we wanna do is wipe our hands of it and be like, 'All right, I wanna move on to the next thing. Reorgs over!'
How do you know it's successful? 'The changes are made in Workday. We sent the email. The reorg therefore is successful.'
No, it is not! You have inserted an organ into the patient. You do not know if the organ will be accepted.
