Change Change is constantly happening in every works of life.

Some characters were able to change easily, while others took more time, or not at all. In this paper, I will discuss how characters in the story compare to real world situations, changes I have encountered and how I will handle change differently after reading “Who Moved My Cheese,” and how a “Who Moved My Cheese” approach could be used to cope with change in healthcare. In the book, “Who Moved My Cheese” there was 4 main characters. Sniff and Scurry, who were mice, and Hen and Haw, who were people that were as small as mice.
