What are the keys to successfully implementing change in corporations?

The answers are hiding in plain sight. We would all love to know how to deal with the problems that threaten to stall or destroy our business projects. When we encounter roadblocks, we often have the sense that they could have been anticipated. Are we focused upon solving issues instead of preventing them? How might we empower companies to change the habits and shortcomings that stand in the way of progress? How can we help them to overcome the problems they face when confronting the reality of change?
