Organizational Change ReportIntroductionFrom this organizations context, it is clear that proper change in this organization is inevitable; they are part and parcel of what the manager’s and CEO as well as workers, have to live with in order for the organization to prosper. It is clear that the organization is countering; external pressure from Government and policy makers, as well as pressure from the internal environment particularly workers, so that the organization can survive amidst its challenges in today’s competitive business era. On a general scale, time and experience that an organization goes through would always make it necessary for change to be embraced in organizations.
Year in year out organizations are involved in a number of managerial processes aimed at reaching out towards their objectives; as organizations do this they come to experience progress that will need to be sustained as well as improved, on the other side they experience failures that they have to counter and embrace some changes so that there is no repetition of the same. Organizational change may encompass changing the working structure, changing how processes are managed, changing the schedules as well as the scope of work (Mehdi 2001, p. 37-47).

This means that the CEO has a big task to increase the involvement of other employees in the management of change so as to minimize resistance that has already began being evidenced. Success in change management comes when the managers and employees understand the usefulness of the changes they are fronting to organizations and to themselves (Cook & Macaulay 2004, p. 38-49). The challenges the managers might face when initiating the changeFrom the change, that was implemented it is reported that the staffs were in absolute disarray and were upset and very angry.
