Too Much Swing

As the pendulum swings, it will pass through the sweet spot of success. However, if the swing has too much momentum, it will pass right through it to an extreme. This is dangerous because the team will feel some of the benefit of the sweet spot and will attribute it to the recent changes. The brief benefits are attributed to the recent changes and they become more resilient within the culture, even if they take the team to an extreme position. Eventually the brief moment of benefit will be eclipsed by the detriment caused by the extreme pendulum swing. When that happen,s a new swing in the opposite direction will happen. If the team is not careful, they will repeat the same mistake on the way to another opposite extreme.
