Most managers still experience difficulties in the understanding the concept behind change management and the change management process. These firms need to commit adequate amount of time and resources in order to successfully implement change management initiatives. They also require patience and persistence because change is fixed and continuous process. The process of change must be closely monitored and improved on a regular basis. This requires managers to simultaneously look for ways of limiting the degree of change and aggressively surging forward with changes. This calls for effective prioritization of goals and targets.
In conclusion, initiating change disrupts the normal operation of an organization. Change forms a sense of stress, anxiety and uncertainty for employees. This is frequently treated as resistance by managers who are already informed about the change and the possible outcomes. It is thus necessary that managers should ensure adequate preparation and inclusion of their employee in all aspects of the change process.
