    Nadler’s requirements for organization change
    For Nadler requirements for organizational change are three:
    1. Motivating change
    2. Managing the transition
    3. Shaping the political dynamics of change

    Nadler is a very well known figure in management research and consultancy. He recommended the following prerequisites for installing a change in an
    organization.

    1. Motivating Change (attitude-to-behavioral change approach)
    It focuses on two method of manipulating attitude and behavioral change:
    i) Persuasion / Cognitive / Emotional method (based on psychotherapy)
    ii) Rational / Intellectual method (based on cost-and-benefit analysis method)
    Hence managers get motivated on the above identified ways ad means.

    2. Managing the Transition
    Manager ought to develop switching skills in order to develop and acquire skills
    and values of newer systems, processes, technologies, and even to new strategies.
    Whenever an organization is in transition,
    It means that managers and organizations have to bear the burden of both
    systems; newer and the older one. In this situation a balance is required for
    achieving the harmony and smooth progression from turning one system to
    another one is extremely difficult. This has been earlier explained to you in
    details.

    3. Shaping the political Dynamics of Change
    When change occurs in an organization an environment of politics emerge
    automatically as change creates winners and losers. The results would be the
    winners and losers will engage in organization conflict. So at this situation a
    dominant condition of interest is required for resolution of the conflict.
    Though it appears simplistic but the author analysis show that environmental
    factors are more likely to pose potential threats to an organization’s well-being, while structural factors are an organization’s major means of achieving success or, at least, coping with threats.

    Assignment

    Semester “Spring 2011”
    “Change Management (MGMT625)”
    Assignment No. 2 Marks: 15
    “Injecting a new system!!”
    Punjab Public Library of Pakistan is one of the oldest libraries of the town founded in 1884
    having total volume of around 259,000 books. As it serves the masses therefore government
    decided to make the procedures of library a little efficient for which government provide
    excessive funds to its Chief librarian.
    The chief librarian decided to replace the manual catalogs with the computerized ones in the
    library, in order to compete with the other libraries.
    Chief librarian floated this idea among his staff and asked for their suggestions &
    recommendations to ensure whether this plan can be implemented or not. He called group
    meetings to discuss this issue and even he talked face to face individually to every member
    involved in the manual catalog systems of the library. According to him it is mandatory to
    discuss because they would be the individuals who have to run the computerized system,
    therefore, they are required to be informed about this change.
    This proposal of chief librarian looked attractive to the whole staff as they were convinced that
    injection of computers will make their search convenient and less time taking. Moreover, the
    employees will also get chance to upgrade themselves with the computer functioning which has
    become an essential requirement for every literate person. This is more like a personal benefit
    of self development for employees but this personal interest may lead to change acceptance.
    The transformation started and the manual system was entered in the computer databases
    gradually rather than abruptly. The shift was slow as first staff was provided training about the
    simple use of computer applications. The staff members were totally ignorant to the use of
    computer systems. In addition to this most of the staff was senior and well trained in operating
    manual catalogs. Therefore, the computer training and teaching data entrance retrieval
    techniques were time consuming. Another important aspect is this that they maintain the
    manual catalog parallel to the computerized catalogs, this help them in recovering any data
    loss. The changeover was slow but effective as it lessen the chances of failure to the greater
    extent.
    1. Read the above scenario carefully and identify & categorize the change activities as the
    following three requirements of Nadler Model of change.
    �� Motivating change
    �� Managing the transition
    �� Shaping the Political dynamics
