This paper explains that Dave Keller, a young employee of NoGo Railroad, must identify and implement organizational changes that will negatively affect other employees and yet he can expect very little support from management. Next, the author describes the unfreezing, changing and refreezing steps that Keller must follow to manage this change process. The paper concludes that the most important thing that he initially must do is to gain the respect of the employees who will be affected by the changes that he must implement.

From the Paper:

"The job descriptions that the company's employees act upon are also not in accordance with the company's present needs. For example, the company still has certain positions that are no longer required. People that fill these positions practically get paid and are not doing much. Also, they have no intention of involving in other activities, because it is not stipulated in the negotiated contracts that were made based on obsolete job descriptions. Even more, the employees' refusal to take on these added activities shows lack of respect towards the management, as mentioned above."
