The way management prepares for the change can create a smooth transition or failure.These changes arise from perceived threats and changing of their normal work routine.According to Lewins force field analysis, “ an issue is held in balance by the interaction of two opposing sets of forces, those seeking the change and those attempting to maintain the status quo; the resisting forces” (Lewin, Kurt).The catastrophe theory states that once an organization is out of its stable or preferred state there is no continuous way back.Considering the task elements involved for groups, collective efficiency perceptions of groups may influence their effectiveness (Gibson, 1999).

But this failure Cleary didn’t stop them from trying again.Many of us try to evade failure but in fact, ‘’we learn from failure, not from success.’’ On a day-to-day basis many lessons have been learnt through failure.Failure is something that reaches all horizons.To quote Allen, “Even though Traf-O-Data wasn’t a roaring success, it was seminal in preparing us to make Microsoft’s first product a couple of years later.” This proves a point that even bill gates failed at his first attempt and took into consideration all he’s leant from his failure to create something bigger and better.Success is great but it would be impossible without failure, which is why we learn from failure, not from success.
