Individual Assignment Executive Leadership Summary
As the consultant facilitating the new software system implementation, you notice attitudes of the employees affected by the change may create a challenge for the change initiative. Some managers are efficient using the current system and think they should not have to adopt the new system simply because other managers are less efficient. Some employees think the focus on operational efficiency is a guise for management’s desire to micromanage employees and may lead to increased disciplinary actions. The human resource assistant and clerical staff are annoyed because they must manually enter all information of each personnel file into the new system.
Your goal is to identify possible attitudes and emotions about the change that may impede success of the software implementation. You must also explain how individual personalities and values may affect employee behavior during the change initiative.
