From the Paper:

"In order to manage this change appropriately one must understand why change is often resisted. For instance, in the Middle East there are various opinions about the changes that have occurred in Iraq and what the outcomes will be (White and Schmidmayr, 2003). There are also many myths associated with people resistant to change. In any respect, people resist change because they are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with the type of change that is taking place (White and Schmidmayr, 2003). In a sense it is simply the fear of the unknown or a feeling that they will no longer be in control of their destinies (White and Schmidmayr, 2003)."
