Abstract

These caselets deal with the issue of change management. Caselet (1) discusses how the implementation of change management in an organisation can bring about dramatic improvement in profits and help it become a market leader. It also highlights the role played by management and employees of an organisation in implementing planned change. Caselet (2) discusses the importance of changing employee behaviour and managerial practices for change programmes to be successful in organisations. Caselet (3) examines the difficulties encountered by management in merging two unequal organisations and the steps to be taken to overcome employee resistance to change. These caselets are structured to enable students to: (1) understand the significance and advantages of implementation of change programmes in organisations; (2) examine the role of management and employees of an organisation in facilitating planned change; (3) understand how implementation of a change programme in an organisation can influence the organisation culture; (4) analyse how managerial practices and employee behaviour can affect the organisational performance; (5) understand the various forces of change; and (6) examine the steps to overcome resistance to change in organisations. These caselets are aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students, and are intended to be part of the organisational behaviour course.
