Zimbabwe Faces a Change Management Problem

For those who are familiar with behavioral theory, Change Management is something dealt with in the hallowed precinct of glass facades and chrome meeting rooms. It deals with how an organisation can change from traditional dhoti-kurta type accounting to modern accounting. (At least, that's my guess:)

Not so in Zimbabwe because since the African country switched to the US Dollar as its currency (yes, the article claims 5 countries around the world use US Dollar as their currency) it has been facing a number of Change Management problems, yes, of the loose change kind. Reason? US loose change is very heavy and therefore the country finds it expensive to import.

So what's the solution? Since a western neighbour has a reputation of printing fake currency bills, maybe, Zimbabwe can outsource the Change Management problem to them. No malice intended to anyone. Just saying.

Remember what Bilbo used to say: It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going
out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet,
there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

I am so convinced of the advantages of looking at mankind instead of
reading about them, and of the bitter effects of staying at home with
all the narrow prejudices of an Islander, that I think there should be a
law amongst us to set our young men abroad for a term among the few
allies our wars have left us.
