Organizations as a whole and people specifically do not like to hear the word change. "Change" has a myriad of dreadful meanings in organizations such as, layoffs, downsizing, relocation and pay cuts. Employees have learned that when the word "change" is spoken to expect the bad but plan for the worst. For many people the prospect of change produces stress or tension in the workplace and on the employees that have to deal with the emerging process. The emergence of new technology, products and increased global competition will only facilitate the change that will be needed in order to compete. One cannot manage the past but can sure take charge of the future.
