ABSTRACT
The author discusses the implications of management change for the employees, managers, and the organization in general. She argues that to implement a smooth change, it is important to consider the people involved because it is through them that change could happen or keep it from happening. Moreover, she stresses on keeping the communications line open because people tend to be more welcoming to change if they know what is coming to them and to listen to their concerns as well.
