Part 1: Introduction

Change is inevitable in the life of an organisation. In today’s business scenario, hospitality organisations exist in dynamic and changing business environments and they have to cope up with the changes for survival and growth as there lies no second alternative, a supportive example in the Indian context to this is Wall mart entering Indian market is expected to change the retail industry from head to toe, competing with established Indian medium-large scale retail companies, and eating away many smaller fishes in the long-run.
The major forces which make the changes not only desirable but inevitable are external environment i.e. technological, economic, political, social, legal; and international and labour market environments. Common practices to all successful hospitality organizations are continuously interacting with the environment and making changes in the structural design or philosophy or…...

...Business Communication A Innovation and Change Assignment 3 Recent Innovations The most advanced and most used innovation is computers and therefore because I have more knowledge in this particular innovation I would like to use it for my assignment 3. Computers have been out for quite a while now, however it has recently been designed for marketing and selling organization’s products via the internet. The internet is a network which allows any person of any age to be able to get accessed into by using the computer. Although it has been around for quite a while everybody nowadays even the so-called known “outdated adults” have been encouraged to use it. This is due to product promotions via the internet which intrigues them and which lures them in some way to buy the product. It doesn’t really necessarily need any training because for most of us we have already been trained in school etc. However, for some people the use of computers can be quite distressing due to their lack of knowledge of it (didn’t go to school, was not introduced by it etc.) therefore, for them it would be more time consuming and they would have to put more effort in order to be familiar with the use of the computers and its other softwares and networks. Computers are occasionally upgraded on monthly basis. This includes: -more software -see through computers -more products via the internet -lighted up mouse -new keyboards -new speakers etc...

...Change and Innovation Latonya Grays HCA/250 April 1, 2013 Jadyne Christensen Change and Innovation There is a lot to think about when managing change in a work place, especially given the scenario being that there is a major health care organization that has decided to use electronic medical records. The main issue would be that the employees in the organization are resistant to change, particularly changes that deal with technology. Other important things to think about would be strategies to manage change and innovation, the resistance between the employees and organizational change, and how human resources can play a role in managing change. Some strategies to manage change and innovation might be to not force the change upon people, but to make the change as real and natural as possible. You do not want to force change upon people, who tends to cause more problems and or issues in the long run. Another thing that you could do is ask yourself questions that might help you understand your decisions on why this change has been made, and understanding that better might help you with adapting to your new surroundings, and jobs, and in general as just being a patient and understanding protocol. A lot of times employees resist organizational change because, change is a big thing already and to add onto it this change may have to do with your job, or even your well being as a patient getting used to the changes. In most cases the employee is...

... reinforcement that strengthens behaviour with kind or behaviour that we want to do. Positive reinforcement can be gift , present or reward. For example in X company have one employee who always hard working when do her jobs, not only hard working the employee work always give an new innovation to create a new product, because of this her boss give her some present that increase her salary. Positive reinforcement is good to motivate someone to become more effectiveness in job but sometime this theory can become contrary. Negative reinforcement also know with avoidance which mean reinforcement that strengthens behaviour which do unpleasant consequences when the employee do something bad. For example in one company there are some employees who are frequently absent, because this case the management of the company establish rules that if the employee is not entered within a certain period then they will only receive half of their salary. Punishment is reinforcement that weakens some employees with do some undesirable behaviour that the employees do not want. Punishment can make the employees become more carefully with their behaviour. For example : in company there a employee who work very sloppy, one day when he do their job he forget to save his data, whereas the data will be presentation tomorrow. Tomorrow when he want to presentation his work in front his boss and other employees he can not find his job, and then after that his boss sent him a letter that he must be more......

...Change and Innovation Sabrina Simms March 31, 2013 HCA/250 Vicki Campbell, RN, MSN, CPNP 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. Change is inevitable; however, if not executed properly that change could be disastrous. As discussed by Richards, (2013), “The ability to manage that change effectively, especially in business organizations, is critical. The effects of change can be negative or positive. Successful management will ensure the latter”. Richards, (2013), suggests that management accept change because once management does change will be easier accepted by employees. Employees look to management for leadership; that being said, if management is united and strong less panic will set in amongst the employees. Practice openness, when an employee does not feel threaten by management or change an employee is more likely to listen. Management should solicit input and if management has successfully implement openness an employee will...

...Cassi Stephenson BUSM Management Chapter 7 Review 1 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. White water rapid describes change that takes place in uncertain and dynamic environments. The stability and predictability of calm water metaphor do not exist. Most managers never get out of the rapids with constant changing environments, such as changing structure, changing technology, changing employees. People can be resistant to change due to uncertainty, habits, concern over personal loss, belief that change is not in the best interest of the company. Environments change every day and will continue to change there are ways to reduce resistance by education, participation, negotiation, manipulation and corporation. The calm water metaphor is not realistic for today’s constant changing environment. Successful managers will have to learn to adapt and succeed in a white water environment...

... perceived to be highly successful and another in which performance fell below expectations. To increase reliability we interviewed multiple managers from each project; each lasting between one to four hours. In total, we talked to over 100 managers from 20 firms, gathering data on over 40 projects. By contrasting the responses, across both projects and firms, we synthesized the strategies and practices that best explained perceived differences in performance. Collaboration is not “Outsourcing” Our study revealed dramatic differences in the performance of firm’s collaboration efforts, driven by contrasting approaches to their management. In particular, many firms mistakenly applied a “production outsourcing” mindset to collaboration, viewing the use of partners only as a means to achieve lower costs through “wage arbitrage” – substituting a US resource with a cheaper one of equivalent skill. These firms saw little need to change the way they organized their innovation efforts to facilitate collaboration. By contrast, successful firms went beyond simple wage arbitrage, asking global partners to contribute knowledge and skills to projects, with a focus on improving their top-line. And they re-designed their organizations, to increase the effectiveness of these efforts. Managing collaboration the same way a firm handles the outsourcing of production is a flawed approach. Production and innovation are fundamentally different activities – 2 while the former seeks......

...The change Doctor Gayle found was that in the organization's mission, and that is in the sense that it went from a general, vague one to a more specific mission with objectives relative to poverty, women, and resources. This change that she found created a need for organizational change, as CARE was based on single national units functioning autonomously. The new mission now meant that there must be international collaboration in order to achieve the objectives set. Question 2: CARE's decentralized approach stems from the fact that the individual country officers raised their own funds and were used to being on their own, as stated in the case. They functioned autonomously as single units and did not see the bigger picture. This could be due to the fact that the organization's previous mission was a vague one that may have not been properly communicated throughout its separate divisions. Question3: As stated previously, the root of the decentralized design in CARE is the fact that the mission was vague and there was a lack of communication across borders. In order to improve collaboration, the first step would be to establish proper communication lines that go across all of the divisions, and most importantly two way communication lines. The company's new mission must then be embodied and shared throughout all of the divisions, and that will create a whole unit. Measurement of results would also improve collaboration in order to determine effectiveness. Question......

...Change and Innovation Shanta Anderson UOP Psychology of Health Care HCA/250 Marie Smith September 25, 2011 It is difficult to adapt to change, especially once one has become accustomed to preparing medical records the written way. However new technology has arrived and is making medical records easy, with the innovations of today. Therefore the management must make changes to prepare and motivate their employees so they can be readily acceptable of the new technology. Healthcare facilities are beginning to use electronic medical records (EMR) for various services throughout the health care realm; although the change is not rather easy for the employees who are adapted to the traditional form of medical records. The new innovation is going to be reliable more so than paper work which can get lost or misplaced during transfers to certain places, and once a medical record is lost it is difficult to replace. The EMR change is used for prescription orders, orders for tests, viewing in the lab or imaging results, and clinical notes. However before this change can take place the employees must be placed into the equation, on the ins and outs of using a new but foreign piece of technology which could make the job much easier or much more difficult. Before the employees can begin to learn a new task they must first be ready to make organizational change, not everyone will agree. So there are steps that management must take to ensure the productivity of the medical...

Change, Innovation and Conflict

...In this lecture we touched on change, innovation and conflict in the work environment. Change is not a bad thing; in the work environment it is usually to improve the current situation or procedures that may be handled in a more efficient manner. In the traditional change of Lewin’s model there are three simple steps: unfreezing, moving to a new level, and refreezing. Unfreezing means that current or old way of doing is thawed evaluated and if needed change is put in to place in order to move to a new level. Innovation can be defined as the process of creating new services. Innovation though different from change modifies ideas and practices to improve outcomes through a team effort. Conflict which is a disagreement about something of importance to the all involved is not necessarily bad but instead can be healthy. Similar to change it allows for a creativity, innovation and new ways of doing things. I feel that change is something that is constantly needed especially in the medical field. I read many articles on medical errors and have seen how the hospitals that I have gone for clinicals are making an effort through change to correct them. Hospitals have gone from written medical orders to computerized orders, nurse and doctors order are computerized as well. These new ways will decrease errors and provide patient with the care they deserve. I have also noticed how some of the older nurse are reluctant to this change as they have been doing it the same way for 20 or......
