Why are we so resistant to change?
Here’s some reasons people resist change (and tips) on how to prepare for change in your company.
According to the Harvard Business Review there are 10 reasons people resist change:
1. Loss of Control — Users don’t like to feel like they’ve lost control. Did your interface change suddenly without explanation? Make sure your guide your users through these changes and explain them thoroughly.
2. Excess uncertainty — User’s actually prefer to “wander in misery than to head towards the unknown”. If your product is an application, one way to alert users of changes is though the app store descriptions when they update.
