The most common killer of change management projects is lack of follow-through. Consultants come in, they write up a bunch of nice looking reports...and then they leave. Nothing against them, but that's just how the gig goes.
Often the people left holding the reports at the company are missing the time, the resources and/or the authority to implement any of it. The whole thing eventually crumbles into dust.
Change fails when companies treat it like an emergency room visit. Run the sirens a bit, stop the bleed, send everyone home.
When really, it all depends on preventative care. Thoughtful, slow, never ending change. An apple a day, not triage.
