From the Paper:

"Change management is also dependent on the structure and the type of industry. Internal variables offer the most challenge to the change process. In established and bigger organizations, application of the change process is more gradual. The process by which change can be implemented in the organization is slower and sluggish due to its size and structure. The degree of agreement between the values, cultural norms, and attitudes that are required for implementation of the proposed change and the organization staff's existing attitudes, values, philosophy, and operating style also determines the success of any change that can be implemented. "Anchor-draggers" exist in all organizations and at all levels, the ability of the management to get these individuals to conform to new styles of operation is important (Womack and Jones, 1996)."
