business change

The contemporary cliché that the "one constant is change and will be change" is tired and overused but nevertheless true.
Recently the International Olympic Committee (IOC) launched the Athletes' Hub, a social media platform designed to bring athletes and fans closer together. A lot has been written about the goals and functionality behind the platform so I won't go over that again; instead I thought it would be interesting to ask why many large businesses don't do the same thing?
The biggest problem facing large organisations today is not a lack of desire to change but a lack of know-how. It stems from a fundamental leadership issue: the wrong types of people have been left in charge.
