Impediments to Change: "In considering the forces for change, the business decision to be made, and their organizational consequences, leaders need to choose between treating the change in an incremental and linear way or in a fundamental, systems-based, and diagnostic way. If an incremental change strategy is chosen, it is likely to deal with "first things first" and to make the necessary changes in sequential order. If a fundamental change strategy is chosen the implications for the organizations are that the organization itself, its parts, and their relationships will simultaneously change. The subparts of the organizations must be committed to change and have action plans in place that fit the constellation of changes needed and that are aligned with the leaders' vision of an end state." (Wren, 1995). There are several impediments to change. Below is a list of the most common impediments to change which include change resistance, power struggles, and interoffice conflict. ? "In a company's organization, change for one department may not be good for change for another. A conflict between the two departments can slow down or even prevent change from occurring. Both organizational groups and individuals can resist change. People can tend to resist change because they feel uncertain or are insecure. Changes can also alter the group norm. When the norm has changed, resistance can occur while individual are adapting to the new norm." (Taylor, 2007).
