The owner of Jumbo Hagendoorn has all the right to make a decision. The strategy of the organization is to sell their products at the cheapest price possible and enhance customers’ satisfaction (have a cheap price and satisfy customer). The problem of this organization is that their stock clerks are not motivated to work; the work is being delayed frequently (demotivation results in delays). The purpose of the change is to motivate stock clerks and minimize the labor costs as much as they can.
According to the interview, team-leaders said that the stock clerks are not committed to the business since there is no communication between the owner, head managers and stock clerks (commitment and motivation should improve). Only resources are allocated to stock clerks and they have assigned tasks that should be finished within the allotted time. They said that the change can be made to motivate stock clerks so that they can achieve better (demotivation results in delays).
