Transformation is typically a thankless job but to stay relevant in the market place, companies have to go though it and someone like you and I have to do the "dirty" work. These initiatives are not for the faint-hearted, and as a result of going through it, I have seen relationships formed, strengthened or even destroyed during the course of these programs.
