Change Management

Part of the Management for Professionals book series (MANAGPROF)


Change management is an indispensable element of the culture “tan.” If the culture of an organization has to be evolved in a certain way, change management is the means to do so. Organizations should have a culture of openness to embrace change. Change management is complex and ambiguous and requires agility like never before. There is no one rule for success, yet there are models that can be looked upon for guidance while embarking on a change initiative. This chapter explores the application of change management models and theories by working out a case of Semicron, a fictitious semiconductor foundry.
