Change fatigue, where constant reorganisations wear down the resilience of teams in an organisation has recently been  rated as the primary emergent risk in the world of work.
The phenomeneon, first identified as a major issue for corporations in the Harvard Business Review by Rosabeth Moss-Kanter, one of our most influential writers and thought leader on the subject of organisational change.

The business intelligence  garnered by Stredia will monitor respondent attitude to changes and support managers in refining and embedding the change.
