No more trojan horses

The trojan horse analogy often gets used when talking about organisational change and introducing new things. But the original trojan horse was used to invade an enemy encampment. If that’s how we think about introducing new ideas it’s hardly surprising they fail. Organisational change isn’t meant to be a fight between old and new, it’s meant to be something everyone is part of, knowingly and openly. So, no more trojan horses.
