In this post the author will explain the Kotter’s eight –step approaches to managing organizational change and discuss how his company handles the planned changes in term of organization reconstruction.

To many employees the implementation of change is not always properly communicated, and the process of change on paper as it is being implemented can be threatening as well as confusing. Also, the people behind the scenes making the changes may not have taken specific details into consideration regarding effective changes that perhaps the employees

Addressing Challenges of Groups and Teams December 10, 2012 LDR 531 Leo Maganares Which methods will be used to present the operational change? According to Cummings and Worley (1997) there is a five-phase process for managing change, including: motivating change, creating vision, developing political support, managing the transition, and sustaining momentum. Motivating change involves creating a work environment that embraces change and developing approaches to overcome any resistance to change. The general guidelines include: enlightening members of the organization about the need for change, expressing the current status of the organization and where it should be in the future, and developing realistic approaches to change.

Once a comprehensive understanding is established phase two, development, begins. Using a combination of behavioral methods taken from the field’s psychology and sociology, a change strategy is created. Using data acquired during assessment, changes can be presented as being compatible and beneficial to the organization’s values, norms and current practices. Phase three, implementation, is the process of executing change strategies within the organization. Unknown to organizational members, implementation occurs prior to an HIS installation. During implementation a step by step procedure is established, creating a framework of standards, work processes, and resources that ensure the majority of an organization’s functions are included. Phase four, reassessment, typically occurs six months following HIS installation. Reassessment requires the same data, collection methods, and measuring standards are used.

Introducing organisational change is often hard, the main reasons for that can be variation in perceptions of the employees, fear of disruption or failure and underlining the right approach to apply change.

“Because of Collecting and analyzing data after the change has been implemented and comparing to previous data will determine whether the change has had a positive or negative impact on the organization. “Questionnaires are often the first method used for collecting information from an organization” (Borkowski, 2005, p. 371). Questionnaires are easy to use and can be administered to large groups and are anonymous. Borkowski (2005) states, “The construction of a questionnaire with an appropriate scoring scale is critical to the ability to effectively analyze the data” p. 371. Creating open-ended questionnaires would result in a variety of responses making it almost impossible to analyze. The questionnaires have to be accurately crafted to produce the correct responses needed for accurate and useful information. “Such expertise is needed because it is important to understand the statistical properties of sample size, power of results, and scale construction, as well as creating a nonbiased instrument” (Borkowski, 2005, p. 371). The downside to using questionnaires is that not every one fills them out, leading to poor results, and not enough data to effectively analyze the results.

The purpose of organisational change practice is to improve and develop the organisation’s effectiveness and efficiency through better management, competence, commnications, systems, and structures.

There are some major environmental reasons that change organisation such as, technology innovation, and globalisation (Brodbeck, 2002). However, recently organisational change only happened in a low success rate. Low success rate of change means it is going to be hard for organisation to reach success.
