Resistance to change of in LWMC

 Most of time it has observed when any
organization wants to implement the change process there is occurrence of
resistance from employees’ side. They may be including the old employees of the
organization, the middle level managers, and other factors. Resistance is

strong unions and support of some political parties because they are not
satisfied with change due to their self-interest, lack of trust and
understanding of fact. Different ideas, goals of employees may also suffer
after change process. Mostly SWM employees are permanent so they are start
thinking that after implementation of new process their jobs are in risk.
