What is Change Fatigue?
John Spacey, updated on April 26, 2023
Change fatigue is an organizational culture that has low energy for change due to a history of failed or problematic changes. This is a type of low morale that may lead to resistance to change. Poorly managed and failed projects are often stressful for all involved. This is particular true of large scale projects that are forced forward despite mounting evidence that they are based on fundamentally flawed assumptions or strategies. Organizational culture is a result of a firm's collective shared experiences. When those experiences involve painful failures and perceptions of weak leadership and strategy, change fatigue may become ingrained in a culture. This can result in low engagement, poor motivation, high turnover, resistance to change and a general cynicism toward a firm's leadership.
