Boeing and Kotter's Change Model
Whenever incorporating a change, whether it’s a big change or a small change, you have to have a model to use as a guide in order to make the change successfully. There are many types of models to choose from. There are some with many steps to go through, as well as some with only a few steps. Whatever model that is chosen to incorporate the change, depends on the change to be made and the size of the organization that is involved in the change.
While wanting to make big changes in the Boeing Corporation, Team A has decided to utilize Kotter’s Eight Step Change Management Model. Kotter’s model is one of the best known change management models and has been around since the mid 1990’s. It was first published in the Harvard Business Review and has since been included in two books, “Leading Change” and “The Heart of Change” (Palmer, Dunford & Akin, 2005). There are eight steps and each step has its own set of actions to follow.
Step One: Establish the need for urgency
The purpose of the change The elimination of outsourcing the engineering duties to different countries around the world will increase the internal communication within the department. The lag from time differences in the various locations caused inefficiencies in design initiatives, product changes and issues needing immediate input from the central corporate office. The elimination of the communication lag will help to increase the problem-solving ability (BDC, 2015), create closer ties within the department, and contribute to improving the initiation of product changes. Consolidating personnel in one country will increase the capabilities of Boing with real-time…...

...Managing Change Initiatives: Fantasy or Reality? The Case of Public Sector Organisations Ebrahim Soltani University of Kent Business School, Canterbury, UK Pei-chun Lai University of Strathclyde Business School, Glasgow, UK Abstract It is becoming a commonplace statement that change initiative programmes are key tools to organisational long-term success. To this end, the last two decades have witnessed a surge of interest in the take-up of various change initiative programmes. Organisational change initiatives, we are told by many commentators, can maximise shareholder value (i.e. economic value theory) and develop organisational capabilities (i.e. organisational capability theory). Specifically, in recent years, as companies have been confronted by the conditions of heightened competition, globalisation, advancements in communications and information technologies, economic recession and simultaneously search for excellence, so the desire to take up change initiatives has interested the majority of leading organisations. At the same time, however, the analysis of the prospects for the majority of change management tools reveals so many deep-seated barriers to change with the consequence of little success in practice. This paper explores this apparent contradiction, arguing that, despite a heightened interest in the take-up of change initiatives, very few change programmes produce an improvement in bottom-line, exceed the company’s cost of capital, or even improve......

Organizational Change Plan - Part Iii

...Organizational Change Plan - Part III The process of organizational change is often intimidating or overwhelming. The prospect of change is not often received well by those in the organization involved in the areas considered for change. Organizational leaders need to monitor and evaluate the staff and patients throughout the process of the proposed change implementation. The constant monitoring is crucial to the success and obtaining the desired outcomes. Monitoring the process and the changes along the change path enables the leadership to determine the success of the process or the need to a pause to re-evaluate and possibly alter the change. According to Spector (2010), “Effective leaders communicate downward to make sure employees at all levels understand in a clear and consistent way the purpose and direction of the firm” (p. 192). Changing any facet of the health care delivery process is difficult at best; the move toward technology is much harder and more challenging. Gaining the support for the change improves the success of the change by getting staff on board and involved in the change. Involving the staff allows staff to have inputs to the change and modifications to the change process along the path. Effectiveness of the Organizational Change Change effectiveness is measured in various ways. The change to ePrescribing and the overall effectiveness of the change requires a collaboration of effort. . Leadership must review the current procedures......

Managing Change Course Project Part 1

...PART II: – THE CHANGE ANALYSIS – IMAGES OF CHANGE This part of the project is presenting to readers an analysis of the images of change found in the two companies – Royal Philips Electrical and BMW. A review of the said companies is made and comparison based on their change stories. The image of change possessed by any manager is determined by how best he/she is able to plan, direct and control the organization's resources (human, finances, materials/equipment and time) in the best possible way. Rodger Dean Duncan (2013), maintained that managers of change should be gardeners as he presented it in a sub-heading “ Be a Gardener, Go for Growth; A first tendency of many business people is to fix things. But successful leaders invest energy in growing rather than fixing. They know the organization is a living organism with many interrelated elements capable of extinction or growth. Successful leaders are gardeners, they create a nurturing environment and they cultivate with care.'' The above quotation has given us a clear picture of how managers of change should look like and what they need to do in order to keep the organizations in continuous growth. Therefore, it is necessary to present a critical analysis of change images in organizations which may apply to any situation of management and not limited to any specific organization. 2.1 Review of the changes in each of the case study organizations: 2.1.1 Royal Philips Electronics......

...Managing Change 1 Management of change issues The motivation to change Change can be a gradual evolution or a sudden transformation. The factors of change from the external environment include:  Regulatory changes that organisations must comply with.  Sudden economic shocks leading to transformational change.  Social changes.  Technological developments. The internal forces that can bring about change include the following:  There is a continuous reaction to historical changes.  innovation - the company may develop a new product or a new manufacturing process.  individual executives’ ambition.  the pursuit of growth. Attitudes to change The role of management is to anticipate the need for change, create an atmosphere of acceptance of change and manage the stages of introduction and implementation. Negative attitudes towards change can be due to the following:  Lack of understanding of the need for change.  Uncertainty of the effect that the change will have on their lives.  Self interest - people may resist change because it could take away something they value. The management of change The organisation can create an atmosphere in which employees are willing to consider change by:  setting simple and clear goals for what the change should achieve.  creating an agenda for change (ie, state clearly what is going to be changed and when).  creating a supportive organisational structure (ie, set up help desks to deal with concerns). ......

...organizational change which has occurred within the last 5 years. Identify the main internal and external drivers which made the change necessary, and discuss the issues they raised for the organisation i. ii. I am writing about an organisation called Charity InvestmentLimited. This organisation was established in 2003 in Lagos state Nigeria. It has staff strength of 350 employees having a hierarchical structure (Madus financial statement 2007). Charity Investmentwas set up for the packaging and selling of portable drinking water called “Lila”. The water is packaged in a 35cl and 1 Litre plastic bottles. It has various distribution outlets within the country but production is only done in one location. The sale of the bottle water (Lila) has been a tremendous success for this organisation. Charity Investmentbelongs to the food and beverage industry and has about 23% of the market share within that industry. However, in 2008, the company decided to venture into another line of business, which is the sale of juice in a 35cl tetra pack. This sale of juice will involve the supply of raw materials, extraction of the juice content, production, distribution, sales and marketing of the juice. This decision also necessitated the setting up of a new division within the organisation called “Enterprise Solution” to cater for the accounting, reporting, manufacturing, processing and sales of the Juice. The juice is labelled “Fruta”. As a result, the major change that has......

...Behaviour - Managing Organisational Change In: Business and Management Organisational Behaviour - Managing Organisational Change ORGANISATIONAL BEHAVIOUR - Managing Organisational Change Essay Topic: One set of authors state that “An organisation’s ability to manage change will have a significant effect on its performance and prosperity” (Graetz. F., et al, 2006, p2 in Grates F. et al, 2006, Managing Organisational Change, John Wiley & Sons, Australia), whereas another author claims that few corporate change efforts have ever been successful (Kotter, J.P., 2005, ‘Why Transformational Change Efforts Fail’, Harvard Business Review, March-April 1995, pp 59-67). Discuss these two statements and build an argument that explains this apparent contradiction with regard to relevant organizational behavioural theory. In my opinion, the statements presented above do not contradict one another, in fact the two statements presented support the need for successful organizational change and the need for concerted effort in implementing the change. In almost every case, the basic goal has been has been the same: to make fundamental changes in how business is conducted in order to help cope with a new, more challenging market environment. Change is an organizational need, at one time or other and management needs rigorous support in achieving positive change outcomes. I want to look in detail the change management theory and practice including Transformational Change, The......

...Business Analysis Part III MGT/521 February 13, 2012 Abstract Making the right choice when looking for a company to invest in can be difficult. Much of the change is due to the evolving business environments – more global competition, declining economy, faster technological change, and pressure to preserve the natural environment (Nickels, McHugh, & McHugh, 2010). In today’s economy it is important to look at many aspects of a company and see how they handle the economic trends and market change. By looking into the company’s strategic and tactical goals, investors can make informed decisions on whether to invest in the company or not. The investor also will get an inside look to the company’s longevity on a global scale.  Business Analysis Part III The next segment in conducting a business analysis is reviewing strategic initiatives of a Fortune 500 company facing the recent economic trends and adapting to changing markets. A major part of the United States’ business success is due to an economic and social climate. Global economics and global politics also have a major influence on businesses in the United States (Nickels, McHugh, & McHugh, 2010). The recession of 2008 and the ever changing trends have had a major impact both at home and abroad. The last two weeks I began looking at Honeywell International and will conclude this three part series with looking at how the company is weathering the recession as well as adapting changing markets and the tactics......
