In this article, I will try to explain this phrase from the Information Systems perspective and give you some hints to overcome the possible resistance you will face while introducing a new business software to a company. We can also say that “Users Resist Change“.
Michelangelo painted Sistine Chapel ceiling (40×13 meters) in 4 years between 1508 and 1512. It was a huge project. Almost all work was done by Michelangelo himself. Of course, he was not alone while he painted, he had many assistants. Their tasks were simply to prepare his paints, carry ladders up and down, prepare the day’s plaster and etc. Occasionally, he would let a talented assistant to work on a small part of a landscape, or a small figure which is almost invisible. Michelangelo hired and fired these assistants on such a regular basis that none of them could claim credit for any part of the ceiling. Not a great team player, huh?
