Making Change Happen, and Making It Stick Few organizations have escaped the need for major change in the past decade, as new technologies and global crises have reshaped entire industries. However, the fact that change has become more frequent does not make such changes any easier. Change is, at its core, a people process, and people are creatures of habit, hardwired to resist adopting new mind-sets, practices, and behaviors. To achieve and sustain transformational change, companies must embed these mind-sets, practices, and behaviors at every level, and that is very hard to do — but it has never been more important.

In our September/October issue, we meet makers partnering with nature in fascinating ways. Japanese artist Kazuhito Takadoi tells us about weaving with harvested grasses and branches, German wood turner Ernst Gamperl discusses his ten-year tribute to one gargantuan oak tree, and we discover a new breed of designers using biomaterials to grow textiles for the wardrobe of the future. Meanwhile, to mark the 10th anniversary of the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke-on-Trent, Crafts asked V&A director Tristram Hunt to assess the revival of ceramics in the city, the challenges the industry still faces and what should happen next. Elsewhere, our columnists bring marginalised female makers into the spotlight, with Glenn Adamson arguing for the importance of women-only exhibitions and Tanya Harrod rewriting a historical wrong.

It's all legitimate, it's all real. Don't hold back. On the other list, write down the privileges, advantages and opportunities you have: The places where you get the benefit of the doubt.Your leverage and momentum.The things you see that others don't.What's working and what has worked.The resources you can tap.The things you know.People who trust you.

Strategic planning Strategic planning is an organization's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. In order to determine the future direction of the organization, it is necessary to understand its current position and the possible avenues through which it can pursue particular courses of action. Generally, strategic planning deals with at least one of three key questions:[1] "What do we do?""For whom do we do it?""How do we excel?"
