Kitty Hawk Theory Of Development

Many organizations fail at affecting meaningful change because of their desire to do too much at once. They argue that since they are making one change, why not fix all the ills of the past. Trying to make too many changes at once is a guarantee to collapse the key efforts. This is also another reason for someone opposed to new ideas to kill a change or development effort.

The idea is very simple—when Wilber and Orville were trying to create powered flight, they weren’t trying to get 300 people to Chicago and provide a warm meal in flight. Their effort was simply powered flight.

Keep focused on your objectives and not what will make everyone happy. With anything new, start with simple goals and a vision that can be attained. Visualize what you are trying to accomplish, see it clearly in your mind’s eye and move towards it.
