This infographic created from ic4p’s 2013 Critical Human Capital Issues Survey identifies the top ten critical issues facing business today. Three of the top ten, including numbers one and two, are related to change and six of the top ten have been on this list for the past four years. Two of the three top issues shared between high-performance organizations and low-performance organizations are also related to change.

Change always carries with it a variety of new challenges and the more prepared you are to deal with these challenges the better.
