In this paper, the determinants of resistance to organizational change are studied in view of the Lewin’s three phase model of change process. The coefficients of fifteen sources of resistance were the critical concerns & were weighed against which sources of resistance presents higher disparity of impact in the phases of the change process. 150 Questionnaires were distributed randomly in CBE, Addis Ababa. A unidirectional logit regression of odds ratio and marginal function analysis was used to get a finding that age and gender are not predictors to resistance, while education and experience are negatively and positively predictors, respectively. It is also found that a variable factor can have varied significance level in the unfreezing, moving and refreezing phases of a change process. In this regard vulnerability driven factor was the highest significant factor in the first two phases while managerial incapability driven factor in the last phase of change management process.

The book aims to contribute to management theory by improving the understanding of cultural and historical influences on management practices. In 2009, the interviews with Indian management consultants were carried out. The results were compared with the findings of similar studies in China and Estonia. The book focuses on leadership style, employee involvement and employee resistance during organizational change management. The study demonstrates that both leadership style and the level of employee involvement differ in different countries. The results indicate that both the structural and the cultural component of the institutional environment influences the resistance to change. Also the history of these countries has a role in change management. The study demonstrates that involving foreigners in a change program makes resistance to change stronger in countries that have been colony or occupied country. Based on these findings, the author modified the triangular model of change developed by Ruth Alas and created a new model where the influences of the cultural and historical backgrounds are also taken into account.

The computing literature contains many proposals for new ways of designing and developing computer-based systems, however, surprisingly (and worryingly) little work has been done to find the evidence that validates ideas about appropriate technical products and methods and links the theory to practice (Briony J Oates, 2006). Resistance to change is shown to be the greatest obstacle to change. The issue of successfully overcoming resistance to change can be achieved only if the end-users believe that using the new technology would enhance their performance. This research conducted empirical assessment and evaluation of SAP ERP software to find out its contribution to change management practice in Airline Company. The research investigates what parts of the system are missing or inadequately aligned in order to predict how capable the organizations can be in terms of organizational transformation. It is very important to make sure that the new technology to be adopted will be able to support the change management practices afterwards. The new technology must promote the change management rather than opposing it.

The intention for this book is to present the resistance to change phenomenon from a new perspective. The term resistance is complex and very often misinterpreted. Change leaders should adapt their perspectives on this subject and try to see resistance from a positive angle as well. By just changing the prospect of analyzing it, managers could experience a greater success in implementing new changes and effectively attract more employees onto their side.Instead of trying to eliminate or suppress employees' resistance, managers should rather use their reactions in a positive framework. Resistance may be useful as feedback and therefore, managers can use it to improve and refine the organizational change process.

This text begins with an intense study of how changes are viewed within a business from three points of view. This study involved surveys and interviews involving employees, managers, and leaders (or upper management). The information that resulted from these sources were compiled and analyzed. Then the various forms of change management and change leadership theories were explored to produce a new model to provide a successful means to achieve successful changes within the workplace. This new model combines effective forms of both change management and change leadership into a single comprehensive, adaptive, and simple pathway which can be used to eliminate employee resistance before it even begins - giving your change efforts a greater chance to succeed with its implementation. This method also improves the ability to sustain the change. This process also makes it possible to make adjustments to the original plan so that the best solution possible can be applied within the workforce, thus improving the competitive advantage you would gain from the change even further.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, University of Applied Sciences Essen, language: English, abstract: In the twenty-first century change and how to lead it successfully has become a critical topic on the minds of organizational leaders. And that for a very good reason: In today's turbulent environment, things rarely remain the same. Change is happening everywhere. Its speed and complexity are increasing and the future success of organizations depends on how good leaders are at leading change. Some of the major forces contributing to the necessity for change are globalization; open and dynamic market conditions, rapid technological improvement, cultural shifts but also the high expectations of customers. In comparison to the past, we know much more today about change and how to successfully implement change management. Nevertheless, managers continue to make fundamental mistakes when they are trying to implement change. In too many cases the improvements have been poor with wasted resources and burned-out, scared and frustrated employees and turmoil in the culture of organizations. People are creatures of habit and when they get into a routine, they don't necessarily want to change for the sake of change - especially when something is taken away from them that they are used to. When confronted with change, the tendency to respond to it is resistance as they often feel insecure ab...

Modern organisations are subject to continual change – technologies evolve, organisational structures are modified, people and underlying cultures are transformed. Yet the facilities that organisations occupy are static and can impede the changes that are essential to organisational survival. The response to change in terms of property and support services is often too little too late – leading to facilities that do not support organisational reality. The facilities management team is thus constantly challenged to bridge the gap between what an organisation has and what it needs. Facilities Change Management is a practical evaluation of the management of change for facilities managers and related professions. It considers: the forces of change affecting facilities decisions the obstacles to change at a resource level and human level the effective implementation of change the human aspect of change Each of these is considered in relation to modern facilities management issues. The discussion will enable practising facilities managers, project managers, surveyors, service providers and architects to understand, engage with and manage facilities change effectively at a strategic level. Through real-life case studies it demonstrates the complexities of change and hidden elements of change that may undermine carefully planned projects.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: -, , language: English, abstract: An enterprise is a dynamic sociotechnical system which should survive in a continuously changing environment to stand the external pressure, satisfying thereof the demands of its external and internal customers.The main goal of every system is its preservation in time. This preservation can be achieved through its continuous adaptation to external and internal pressures and thus through constant change and evolution. The concept of evolution involves the concept of change. Therefore, change is a concept closely linked to survival, growth and success of any system.However, a key element of each system is the man - employee. The employee with his/her work contributes directly to achieving the objectives pursued and leads and organizes the continued growth and development of the system to which s/he belongs. The employee as human nature seeks the development and pleasantly accept change . Without the effort to change, the society would not have progressed as well as technology, thinking and science. From a psychological point of view, the man would feel empty, sterile, unfinished, s/he would be inactive and passive, would lose confidence and creativity.However, there are many studies and rich literature, claiming that the resistance of employees in an organizational change is almost automatic and certainly unexpected, and it is ...

The study concluded that change management significantly determined firms' performance. The study recommended among other things that managers should make change management an integral part of firms' functions so as to ensure firms' performance. A major implication of the findings for the industry is that it has provided an insight into some of the implications of change leadership, change readiness, change implementation and change commitment on firms' performance in telecommunication industry. Change leadership is important but may not play a significant role on firms' performance. Change agents should be ready to accept, adopt and adapt to the change.

A new lean and agile model for more effective change management Rapid Organizational Change gets right to the heart of the change initiative problem, and offers a time- and money-saving solution.

By targeting change efforts at specific mid-level layers of management, this book helps you achieve the desired outcome more efficiently while saving time, effort and money. Full of practical advice and real-world examples, this book is your action guide to making change happen in a meaningful way. You'll learn how to continually develop great leadership at the institutional level, and gain real, actionable guidance on putting more women in management positions to help you grab that competitive advantage. Today's disruptive technologies and macro-economic patterns have elevated organizational agility to the rank of survival skill. Change is a constant in business, but it's now coming faster than ever; this book gives you the strategies you need to keep from being left behind. Target mid-level managers for faster change Institute perpetual leadership development outside of HR Correct gender inequality in management positions Utilize your best resources to gain competitive advantage Most change management models have the same inherent problem: by the time new processes and strategies trickle down to every manager and staff member, the opportunity has passed and the change can no longer be effective for its intended purpose.

A volume in Research in Management Consulting: Series Editor: Anthony F. Buono, Bentley University and Contemporary Trends in Organization Development and Change: Series Editors: Peter F. Sorensen, Benedictine University and Therese F. Yaeger, Benedictine UniversityAs a follow-up to a 2010 volume on organizational change-related consulting, the book continues to push our thinking about the dynamics involved in consulting with change leaders and intervening in the change process. Consulting for organizational change is a special type of consultation, with its own complex set of conditions and needs for a broad range of skills and competencies, which include distinct needs for the client-consultant relationship, superior consulting/facilitation skills, an expertise in human and organizational systems, and, as emphasized in the volume, the masterful "use of self." As with our prior edited collection, this volume is a joint publication in the Research in Management Consulting and Contemporary Trends in Organization Development and Change book series. The dual focus is intended to reflect the importance of quality consulting for change across both the management consulting and Organization Development (OD) fields. It follows a long history of interest in how consulting affects organization change, what works, and, perhaps most importantly for generating theory and insight into the change process, why it works.The book contains fourteen chapters that frame the changing natu...

Not only is management challenged to face the strategic importance for competitive advantage that business consultants promise, but also information professionals who have been engaged in this subject already for quite a long time. This dissertation focuses on a comparison of knowledge management with information management, based on a model that embraces both information and knowledge. Founded on an examination of the unique characteristics of knowledge, the concept of knowledge management is introduced. To stay in synch with the pace of change in their operational and competitive environments organisations require a balance of organisational competencies for knowledge management and change proficiency. This requires a new kind of learning called „double-loop learning” and implies knowledge flows across organisational boundaries. Knowledge Management can be expected to fundamentally change the management perspective on movements such as Total Quality Management and Business Re-engineering, forcing management to basically rethink the theory of processes. Another focus of this dissertation is on the role that technology plays in knowledge management. As information professionals are traditionally concerned with technology it has been considered to look at knowledge management technology in more detail. Technology is one of six key factors facilitating kn...

This book "Eco-friendly Management of Alternaria Blight Disease of Mustard" is the outcome of fourteen years research experience in Plant Pathology. This book has been written for the eco-friendly management of most destructive alternaria blight disease of mustard. These eco-friendly non-conventional chemicals provide nutrients to the host plant which affect the relationship between crop and pathogen in many ways. By applying the chemicals, host plant induces resistance to the pathogens by induction of host resistance, such as salicylic acid or methyl jasmonate. Efforts have been made to manage the disease by using appropriate doses of such host resistance inducer chemicals. Manipulation of crop nutrition gives the farmer a valuable tool for managing crop health as well as reduced public pressure over pesticide residue in food and in the environment.

In today’s ever changing world, all types of organizations have increased their efforts to identify planned change models to address the many emerging challenges and opportunities they face. Despite the popularity of planned change efforts, the failure rates of implementation are as high as 50 to 70 percent. While these efforts are affected by technical issues, organizational culture and communication practices are thought to play a more critical role. The central purpose of this book is to examine the role of organizational culture and communication in the implementation of the popular performance-based management system known as Compstat, which has been implemented by many police organizations in the U.S. This book provides a contextual, reciprocal, and interactional understanding of the role that culture and communication play in the Compstat implementation. This approach brings a rich explanation of the change process that ultimately increases the likelihood of a successful implementation of change models. This book is especially useful to professionals in Communication, Criminal Justice and Management fields, or Managers who are planning to adopt these kinds of change models.

Resistance to change embodies a significant threat to the contemporary organisation’s ability to adapt to its environment. One reason for such resistance lies in the threat that organisational change poses to the meaning employees find at work. Logotherapy – a psychological school of thought that focuses almost exclusively on addressing the individual’s search for meaning – provides the theoretical principles and practical foundation for a novel approach to organisation development. This "Logo-OD" can make a substantial contribution in addressing the individual's experience of meaning amidst organisational change, thereby improving the speed and effectiveness through which change interventions can be implemented.

All organizations operate in an environment that is rapidly changing. To be successful, the organizationmust also change. The question is what to change and how. This book will describe in some detail anumber of management programs, many of which are known by their three-letter acronyms, such as Justin-Time (JIT) or Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). A management program is designed to improve anorganization's effectiveness and efficiency. However, there are so many management programs it is oftendifficult for managers to decide which one would be most appropriate for their operation. This book willdescribe an array of management programs and group them to indicate their primary purpose. The bookwill also outline a process that will enable managers to select the most appropriate management program to meet their immediate and long-term needs.Implementing a management program is no small task. It can be expensive, time-consuming, and disruptive of normal operations; therefore, thechoice of the management program requires careful selection and implementation. Care must be taken to increase the likelihood of successfullyimplementing new ventures in all types of organizations - business, nonprofit and governmental agencies. Many ventures fail, or achieve limitedsuccess, not because the idea isn't good but because the organization has not adequately prepared its internal capabilities to meet the environmentalconditions in which it operates.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1,0, University of Hannover (Institut für Politische Wissenschaft), language: English, abstract: Since the demise of the Santer Commission, internal reform of the European Commission (EC) has received increased academic and political attention. The more recent academic discourse has focused on assessing outcomes of the Kinnock reforms but is marked by divergent approaches and conflicting interpretations. This text proposes to address these issues by embedding the more practical EC Reform discourse within the more abstract Organization Theory (OT) discourse and applying coherent models of organization and change to EC reform.The first part of the text organizes the OT field within a metatheoretical matrix, proposes coherent models of organization and change, and assesses the dynamics of the management framework market. The second part connects the OT to the EC Reform discourse by analyzing the transfer of management practices from the private to the public sector and by identifying major adoption types across the private-public sector continuum. The third part uses the established models to investigate the changemanagement history of the European Commission, and systematically relates internal management of change to external political action.More specifically, the first part argues that the essence of most organization theories and management frameworks can be com...

Today's business leaders are required to navigate a difficult path between building and maintaining a stable, effective and successful organization, and rolling out a seemingly endless series of complex change initiatives to ensure ongoing relevance in the marketplace. Complex change is costly, difficult, and has a high degree of risk. By definition, complex change requires individuals within the organization to make significant changes in how they fulfill the duties associated with their role. Things like moving to a new technology platform, going through a merger, organizational restructuring, and adding or eliminating a product or service all involve complex change. In 1990, Peter Senge's book The Fifth Discipline was published, and the concept of organizational change management was introduced into the business world. Since then, analysis of data from thousands of change implementations point to the same conclusion - approximately 70% of change projects fail to achieve their defined goals. This data also shows that the 30% of projects that do meet expected ROI all found a way to effectively address the people side of change. This book introduces the concept of integrated organizational change methodology (iOCM), which provides a framework for integrating best practice organizational change management principles into all facets of a change plan, resulting in significantly improved project outcomes and maximum return on investment.

Scientific Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, , language: English, abstract: AbstractThis work aims to propose a qualitative "starter model" for a new software defect prevention for better Software Quality. Software defect prevention methods and models have made substantial progress in recent years. But this still falls short of the needs of today and the future. One contribution is a qualitative model that takes into account key determinants and their interlinked effects. The model is based on System Dynamics and the elements involved in the software development process, e.g. the human being, management, members of staff, work psychology, quality, methods, organizations, customer, culture etc. Current research status comprises 15 identified important key determinants, their respective strength, interrelationships and dynamics. The model is operationalized with a software tool capable of modelling all the key determinants defined, their effect directions and other data of the comprehensive matrix they make up. With the research results made, the new defect prevention model shows promise. The research is due to continue further in order to contribute to improved defect prevention in the software development process. The number of key determinants, their respective strength etc. be will be 140 in the final research work.Keywords: Systemic, software, software development, Software-quality, defects, defect prevent...

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Ludwigshafen (Institute for International Management Consulting I-IMC), language: English, abstract: In the current financial and economic crisis, public concern of a value-based economic system grows. The demand by politicians, economists and the society for ethics-oriented behaviour in the market increases and thus questions the prevailing system of worldwide managerial capitalism. Especially in Germany, the rising awareness for bad business practices calls for a change in values. This development not only affects the providers of products and services, but also has significant impacts on their strategic and operational advisors: the industry of management consulting. Against this background, the present masters dissertation examines the extent to which the principles of integrative consulting ethics are incorporated in management consulting firms in Germany. To this end, the determinants of awareness, institutionalisation, application and enforcement of ethics integration in organisations are assessed. This work represents the first academic approach to researching the practical application of thoroughly reflected ethics-oriented guidelines and standards in the industry management consulting.After a general introduction into the topic, the theoretical framework research provides the background of the work done in t...

Enterprises, companies and organizations around the world strive to achieve competitive advantage by designing and implementing more advanced business and organizational architectures, streamlined and robust processes and structures, and effective and scalable management systems and practices. Industry, academia and management consulting companies have developed a variety of organizational models, change frameworks and transformation roadmaps to facilitate and to support business improvement activities and initiatives. The overall change management landscape, however, remains rather vague, overlapping and fragmented at the same time. To reduce this ambiguity and to be able to make a better-educated choice of models and frameworks to use, a close examination, classification, mapping and analysis of leading models and frameworks is conducted here. Common themes and distinct features are identified. The coupled nature and duality of organizational models and change frameworks are identified and explored. To complement high level change management frameworks with applied tools, a change management projects scoring approach called “BLUE-over-RED” is proposed.

Issues concerning globalisation, protection of identity and resistance to change at the national level (e.g., Brexit) have been the cause of much public and scholarly debate. With this in mind, this book demonstrates how these national, and indeed global narratives, have impacted on and are influenced by ‘going-ons’ in local contexts. By situating these national narratives within a rural context, Kerrigan expertly explores, through ethnographic research, how similar consequences of informal social control and exclusion are maintained in rural England in order to protect rural identity from social and infrastructural change. Drawing on observation, participant observation, and in-depth interviews, ‘A Threatened Rural Idyll’ illustrates how residents from a small but developing rural town in the South of England perceived changes associated with globalisation, such as population growth, inappropriate building developments, and the influx of service industries. For many of the residents, particularly those of middle-class status and long-standing in the town, these changes were seen as a direct threat to the rural character of the town. The investigation highlights how community dynamics and socio-spatial organisation of daily life work to protect the rural traditions inherent in the social and spatial landscape of the town and to maintain the dominance of its largely white, middle-class character. As a result, Kerrigan contends that the resistance to change has the consequence ...

Engineering changes are unavoidable and occur throughout the lifecycle of products. Due to the high interconnectivity of engineering products, a single change to one component usually has knock-on effects on other components causing further changes. This change propagation significantly affects the success of a product in the market by increasing development cost and time-to-market. As such engineering change management is essential to companies, but it is a complex task for managers and researchers alike. To address this challenge, the book at hand investigates the state-of-the-art of research in engineering change management and develops a method to support engineering change propagation analysis, termed FBS Linkage. This method integrates functional reasoning with change prediction. A product is modelled as a network of its functional, behavioural, and structural attributes. Change propagation is then described as spread between the elements along the links of this network.

With the competitive landscape changing faster than ever before, leaders understandably favor what has worked for them in the past.But that kind of approach doesn't give anyone the motivation to develop new and better strategies to execute and navigate change. As a result, change leaders and practitioners find themselves asking the same-old questions:• With no time for failure, how can initiatives be moved forward?• How do you fit the right change method to the change objective?• How do you create a roadmap that is designed for success?• Why do some organizations succeed with change while others struggle?The authors share the insights of change management thought leaders that have stood the test of time within the scope of organization-wide change. Change managers today can review the work of these thought leaders to better understand and implement effective change in their organizations.The authors also propose a holistic meta-framework to create a path for enterprise-wide change. With the insights from case studies, you'll learn how to create a customized and robust transformation plan for your own organizational change initiatives.

Conquer the most daunting change initiative with the right people, tools, and strategies. James Dallas' Mastering the Challenges of Leading Change is an informative, insightful guide to effectively leading the transition through change. While most change management books present case studies about what happened at other companies, this book is based on the author's own experiences managing over 10 transformational and turnaround initiatives, 15 acquisition integrations, and 5 operations/quality shared services centers of excellence. By relating personal lessons learned, how they were subsequently applied, and how you can benefit from them, this book provides a unique first-hand perspective on successful agents of change. You'll learn the qualities and skills required to usher in the new paradigm, and how to break a large initiative into manageable chunks that are more likely to proceed as planned. By crafting your strategy based on proven methods, you're far and away more likely to meet or even exceed your change objectives. The majority of change initiatives fail because people mistakenly think that a change agent is the same as a project leader. They're not. This book shows you why, and how get the tools, strategies, and people you need at the helm of your initiative to come out the other side much stronger as an organization. Learn the critical skills required for effective change management Assess the difficulty and politics of a change initiative Choose the right people to help implement the change See past obstacles and lead effectively in a crisis Change is occurring within and across all industries, countries, and organizations. They begin with the best of intentions, but most fail to meet their objectives. Don't let your organization be one of the failures.
