denials change of model says that people shocked fristly when anybody talk about change in organisation so they try to avoid it frist because they dont know how it will change their work. it make insecurity in thier lifes. because usually they dont aware about it and dont get time to think about it.


Change is the process that people try to avoid frist, its up to the management to convince the staff that this change is necessary for our organisation. their is some steps that i would like to suggest to colleagues about the change.

frist thing is that management should be very supportive about the change, like they come with some stratigy and implement the as one of change model management.

explain the all staff why change is is important for our organisation.

it is also important that everybody should participate in the change, and change is clear in everybodies mind that actully whats going on.why we implementing that change and what is a effect of it.

dicussion about the change is as much as important its implementation,so discuss the change with everybody and get their feedback from everybody.


fear of losing job

less knowledge about the change

fear of decrease in performance level

communication misunderstanding

less trust in management

organisational politics


in recommendation i choose a kotters eight step change module, it will help my colleagues to understand that why change is important for the organisation. in this change module people can understand the value of change.

give time to the staff about the change and spend more and more time with them, so this makes them more comfortable about the change another thing is think about the weak points that where our staff will refuse to implement it. and try to solve it as much as possible, leader should do some more things like tell the staff what are the advantages of the change for instance, if our owner says that we are lauching a new base for the pizza we all frist say no, but when we will see the benefits like it will increase our sale or when ever we go to another comapny we already got a knowledge of some different product it will benefit us only. so this thing agree us about the should tell there staff about the change and benefits of should do that remove all the obstacle from the way of staff, like give proper training to the staff about the product,they should allow financial and nonfinancial incentives to staff for their satisfaction.

the new computer system will increase there speed at the work place, from the place of order to making of product will take only 10 seconds, re so the person who is making a pizza will get more time to decorate it for there customer. which atracts them and they will come back to tell there staff the advantages of new software system.


in this part of assignment i choose a small scale business which is grocery shop which only get a some grocery things to sale and another large scale of business i choose is honda motor which is world wide famous and they are running there business every where in the world.


the owner of the honda motors got a indiviual control on the market of cars, but he hired a CEO'S and other managers for take care of his work he paid them a heavy pays and his organisation look so formal and they followed a stratigy.
