change remains deﬁnitive.
harvard business review • january 2007
Over the past decade, I have watched more
than 100 companies try to remake themselves
into signiﬁcantly better competitors. They
have included large organizations (Ford) and
small ones (Landmark Communications),
companies based in the United States (General Motors) and elsewhere (British Airways),
corporations that were on their knees (Eastern
Airlines), and companies that were earning
good money (Bristol-Myers Squibb). These efforts have gone under many banners: total
quality management, reengineering, rightsizing, restructuring, cultural change, and turnaround. But, in almost every case, the basic
goal has been the

In an immediate effort to combat the disappointing results as well as the significant stock drop, RIM lays off 200 employees in its Waterloo office (The Econonmic Times, 2011). This cost cutting procedure continues into July 2011 where RIM cuts 2,000 jobs which equates to roughly 11% of its total work force (Arthur, 2011). This cost cutting also helped reshape second tier management.
With the announcement of job cuts and stock value decreases, the shareholders called for change at the executive level. While the Co-CEO positions have always been questioned

A crucial factor of the above is, how far people within a change process understands the change (Connor et al, 2003).Bourne and Bourne (2002) express that change, can be external through technological development, social, political and economic pressure.

Change in Leaders
One of the major reasons why organizations are unable to adapt to the fast-paced, changing environments of today is the lack of effective change leadership. Leaders who are successful in guiding their organizations through change are typically those who:
* Embrace change in the environment as opportunities on which to capitalize.
* Are vision artists—they can paint a picture of the future that is vibrant and clear to all
* Have the ability to communicate to all levels of the organizations the values and attitudes that will promote change and adaptability.
* Accept mistakes and the learned lessons they

The successful management of change requires transformational leaders to display appropriate behaviours and accomplish certain tasks. Tichy and Devanna (1990) argue that transformational leaders bring about change through a three-stage process: recognising the need for change; creating a new vision and institutionalising change. For his part, Nye (2006) argues that transformation requires leaders to perform several tasks: (1) correctly intuit the direction and pace of events (2) devise appropriate and feasible

Every day it seems as if technology further advances, abilities that were once only thoughts decades ago; have now become today’s reality. Richards, (2013), “While many speak as if change is a reflection of the 21st century, the world has actually been changing for many, many years. The ability to manage that change effectively, especially in business organizations, is critical”. There are so many ways technology can better a workplace, and it is the job of management to provide training to the employees so the newest of technology can be of assistance to the organization.

By establishing urgency, members of the organization are proactive and not waiting for unanticipated problems to develop and hinder operations. People everywhere respond to urgency, especially when others join the movement. According to Weiss (2011), “Urgency wins support and cooperation. If the people in the organization, in particular the leaders, feel complacent, they have no impetus to change” (p. 227).

The difference between how change is handled in an organization can be described in two metaphors. Calm water looks at change in business as if you were on ship crossing a calm sea and only the occasional storm would disrupt your journey. In the calm waters metaphor change is seen as the occasional disruption in the normal flow of events. White water rapid metaphor describes change as a group of people trudging through white water rapids that has never worked together before; to add to the challenge they are doing this at night time.

One of the rules of the ROWE program was that all members of the department had to approve the change. If one resisted, nobody in the department could be a part of the program. As amazing as the program sounds, the ROWE program received rejection from all employees of certain departments and from individual members of the management staff.

It is obviously true that past climate change was caused by natural forcings. However, to argue that this means we can't cause climate change is like arguing that humans can't start bushfires because in the past they've happened naturally. Greenhouse gas increases have caused climate change many times in Earth's history, and we are now adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere at a increasingly rapid rate.

There is little reason to jail low-risk defendants who are simply waiting for their trials to begin. And, government funding streams can change to reward reducing incarceration.

The term "supply chain management" entered the public domain when Keith Oliver, a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton, used it in an interview for the Financial Times in 1982. The term was slow to take hold and the lexicon was slow to change. It gained currency in the mid-1990s, when a flurry of articles and books came out on the subject. In the late 1990s it rose to prominence as a management buzzword, and operations managers began to use it in their titles with increasing regularity.
Common and accepted definitions of supply chain management are:
