Inclined to change
Industrial and systems engineering is a change-oriented profession, so we practitioners tend to expect change versus avoiding it. Without a desire to change – to make things better – our profession would not exist. Conversely, we live in a world that resists change. People like their structure, habits and rules, even if they choose at times to ignore many of them.

Verizon's 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report clearly illustrates the threats facing organizations around the world.
