The paper "Changes in Nestle Company" is a great example of a management case study. There are several interpretations of what change really is because different people understand and manage change in several ways as long as they can effectively cope with it. At times, change can be unsettling and this is the reason why the manager needs to be very logical and sober to handle the influences Managers of these organizations should ensure that they use face to face form of communication in order to pass on the relevant information to the relevant parties since written information can be very difficult at conveying understanding of the changes needed in the organization and how the process will be done.
Sometimes, the change will involve some new actions, objectives or even new processes for a particular group or team. (Patrick 1994) The research that was carried out was aimed at determining how change was introduced into the Nestle Company. External factors in any organization will affect the image of any organization and in the case of Nestle Company; the main factor was geopolitical pressure which was mainly the influence of the political bodies in the country and the world at large (James 2000).
This mainly meant that due to microeconomic changes or crises, an organization is forced to change the way it operates. The company was forced to change its approach to global expansion and instead of having its agent carry out the sales; it opted to purchase the local subseries from foreign markets and especially from the United States. Hyper-competition pressures were the effects that were caused by increased competition from other companies to try and win as many customers as possible.
The company realized that there was an intensified rate of business in the United States market for dairy products. This forced the company to respond to the competition and demand by opening more factories in the United States to be able to deliver well to the consumers (Ian et al 2009). This change had to start at the organizational level. The company also felt the pressure to maintain a good reputation and credibility in comparison to the other organizations in the market and this was why they had to implement change. On the other hand, there were some internal factors in Nestle Company were slowly growing and due to the exceeding pressures, there was a great need to impose a change in order to accommodate the new developments.
The existing systems were faced within the challenge of the demand from the United States to have more dairy products and this was why they ended up opening more branches in that country in order to cater for their needs. In order to be more efficient, there was a need to be more specialized in performing the duties in the company (David 1992).
When more branches were opened in these countries, the employees needed to be equipped with more specific knowledge on the tasks that we expected to perform, rather than perform general tasks. New broom pressure was an internal factor that was caused by the demand to bring in new management in a company in order to have better performance. In Nestle Company, there were some major changes at the senior management level particularly the CEO.
These changes are always catalyzed by these individuals in the organizations and like in nestle company, restructuring was a continuing process (Patrick 1994). In the 1980’ s the CEO who was in charge of Nestle Company focused on the financial improvement of the company.
