The Decision to Scramble

The temptation to scramble is reduced during periods of economic slowdown for two reasons: (1) more qualified people are unemployed and already in the marketplace, trying to capture the fewer positions available; (2) one is less tempted to make a geographical move in uncertain times when it may be more difficult to sell an existing home. Even so, intense scrambling continues as creative opportunities open up in smaller companies.

Some resignations are positive actions; they benefit both the organization and the individual. Some make sense because reorganizations increase the possibility of future layoffs. Some resignations, for a variety of personal reasons, are unavoidable. Others, however, seem to stem from poor judgment and turn out to be mistakes.
