MGMT 311 Organizational Behavior
Change is at times seen as a good thing, accepted by an organization as a whole in order to benefit the organization, but at times, change can have negative consequences that can lead to the failure of a prospering company. In large organization change needs to be accepted by the majority of the company to lead to success, when the change is viewed negatively, negative actions can take place leaving management with more issues to deal with. One large corporate organization that change had a negative effect on is Hewlett Packard (HP), whose management issues have left the company is dire need to be re-evaluated for management effectiveness.
