Section Review 19.1 Key Terms Forces for change  Change  Planned change  Change agents  Manipulation  Cooptation Case Studies Samsung  Wherehouse Entertainment  Tower Records  Toyota Motor Corporation  Harvard University Summary Change  is a constant in the contemporary environment. Forces for change include the  changing nature of the workforce, technology, economic shocks, competition, social trends,  and world politics. While change involves making things different, planned change are both  proactive and purposeful. The goals of planned change are improving the ability of the  organization to adapt to changes in its environment and changing employee behavior.  Change agents are responsible for initiating and managing change within an organization.  These individuals can be managers or non-managers, either insiders or third parties.  Change agents may try to  minimize resistance to change  by education and  communication, participation, building support and commitment, negotiation, manipulation  and cooptation, selecting people who accept change, and coercion. Coercion is the least  effective strategy. Examples include threats of transfer, loss of promotions, negative  performance evaluations, and a poor letter of recommendation.  Section Outline I.
