1. What forces for change are evident at the Oconomo plant? Forces for change exist both in external environment and within the organization. External forces in favor of the change include lower cost of wages, less strict pollution controls that would mean lower operating costs, the opportunity to operate in a non-union environment, and competitors with lower prices. External forces against the change include the costs of relocating the operation, increased training costs, transportation, and other matters, adapting to a dramatically different culture and work ethic, and lose production during the move. Internal forces in favor of the change include higher wages, more government regulation, and the unwillingness of union leaders to accept lower wages or structural changes that would improve profits. Internal forces working against the change include personal relationships with the workers and concerns about their futures if the change occurs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
