This paper first explains that managing change is difficult because the processes must capitalize on the core competencies of the organization. Next, the author stresses that a big barrier to managing change effectively is employees' resistance to accept change; therefore, the responsibility for coordinating change is part of the strategic human resources function. The paper recommends using Lewin's change model with its phases of unfreezing, changing and refreezing to help management coordinate acceptance of change by the employee.

From the Paper:

"Successful organizational change requires certain employee behaviors and the management relies upon the human resource strategist to develop strategies that will produce those required employee behaviors. One of these strategies is to manage knowledge effectively. This is the age of competition and information. The company that has more information is more competitive. As a result the management of a company, in order to develop a competitive edge, must not only collect the information but also manage it in a way so that employees know where to find which category of information."
