As times change companies need to change as well. We will not be able to sell a product these days if we are still doing business the same way that we did 10 years ago. Change can affect ta company in a positive or negative manner. If a company tries to change too much at one time it could bring on a bad outcome. The last company that I worked for fell in this category. The owner tried to force growth of the company and ended up getting in over his head and ended up having to sell the company. The company is now being closed at the end of this year after being open for more than 25 years. If the owner had slowly advanced he would probably still be in business here and I would still have a job less than five minutes from home. Unfortunately, I am now forced to commute and hour and a half to and from work each day because the changes were not managed properly. Matthew 4 hours ago, at 2:26 PM NEW The change in management should be implemented due to the ability to adapt, the one thing organizations cant control is the change of the external landscape in the industry. A personal experience that I encountered was a few years ago working for a property management company over apartments. The company I worked for managed the property for a group of investors, and were paying the property management company a percentage of profit to run it. The employees that worked on the property were highly efficient and generated profits over 95% monthly and kept the cost down. So the management group flew from their offices in NJ to GA to visit and speak with us about the positives and negatives, and how to improve the property. We gave them input on how to make the property more profitable and of more value based off of the traffic to appeal to a more diverse demographic to increase rental prices. Long story short, the owners developed their own property management company. Decided to end the partnership with the property management company we worked for, and offered all of us higher pay and better benefits to work directly with ownership. The changes in management affected us in a positive way as we were able to adapt and pivot from the outdated way of marketing upkeep of the property. The suggestions we as a group made were implemented and the property thrived with higher rent amounts and diversified the demographic of the property with improvements. Ownership made a higher profit monthly all while cutting out the middle man, and we as employees were happier with the increase in pay and the new way of operating was better for us. That is how change management was used to improve the organization. Nelson 9/15/20, 10:49 AM NEW Change is difficult, perhaps one of our biggest flaws as humans is our need for routine. However, change is a foundational necessity for an ever growing company. Without change, we remain constant, and without growth. Change management is important in the work place, because change is inevitable, and change can sometimes turn a company upside down, especially if it is not rolled out properly. When we manage a change in protocol, or a change in how we handle our business and day to day duties, we are disrupting the status quo, the culture built, and the ever so comfortable and safe routine that has been built. IF change is managed inappropriately, or with too much or too little regard for those it is affecting, all can go awry. Change management, dictates and charts the slow acceptance of change in the work place
