This metaphor expresses the belief that their personal responsibility is minimal; resulting in apathy and seeing no need to help. In addition, people that are aware of the specific situation, might take for granted that someone else has already helped the victim or that help is about to arrive, so they see no reason to intervene. (Garcia, Weaver, Moskowitz & Darley, 2002). In the same vein, another contributing element to the fact that the victim is less likely to receive help when there are many bystanders is that the psychological expense one has when not offering help is often less when others are around due to personal responsibility reduction. Another issue, is that since an individual is harder to be recognized in a group and has a feeling of anonymity from being able to go unseen in a crowd, he is less likely to be judged personally for not helping and thus less likely to get involved (van Bommel, van Prooijen, Elffers & Van Lange, 2012).
Resistance to change, Management and Organizational behavior, 2005, p. 914 Example: cloke and Goldsmith refer to. ‘The command and control relationship between managers and employees of the organization generates blindness that creates frustration and reduce the likelihood for organizational change’.

The importance of techniques in achieving project objectives was stressed by the majority of literature on project management (for example, Kerzner, Duncan and Gorsha). They stress how successful implementation of techniques contributes to a successful project. (Avots, Duncan and Gorsha) both claim that project management is an important part in project success. (Avots) in studying the reasons for project management failure, argued that by paying careful attention to the project management factors which caused failure could be avoided failure. (Duncan and Gorsha) recognized three problem areas which indicate the success of a project.
The results will be documented into report with an appropriate conclusion Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) FMEA is introduced to determine the possible hazards related with a operation by examining the breakdown mode for every operation element.The analysis was carried according to the steps; 1. The system has to be specified, for instance every single details performed by other team need to be known by the assessment team. 2. The aim of the assessment and basic fundamentals need to be installed. In addition the way the results will be shown needs to be explain 3.
From my own words I can say that, strategic drift is the situation when the strategy of the organization fail to cope with the change in the organization, be it internal changes or external changes or when the organization strategic becomes outdated to the extent of failing or stop to hold relevant to the business environment the organization is exposed to; and that risk management as the process of critically managing the business environment in ways of eliminating risk or reducing risk that can affect the organization and that the process need critical examination and logical sequence of activities for follow; with these any organization in the modern world need to focus on the two issues to ensure the operational and financial health of
According to Adenle (2011), bad management is one of the major reasons why individuals resist change at the workplace. Change resistance are created whenever management refuse to communicate what, when, how, why, and who. Sometimes it is how, when, and why management does it that creates resistance to change. In most workplaces, many employees do what they are accustomed to because they feel more comfortable and secure with their previous routines. If doing what they are accustom of doing from the past worked best for them, then they may more than likely resist change.
Firstly, trust issues, which revolve around change agents not being able to trust others. Another factor would be the case of bad communication and misrepresentation between the change agents and recipients. An example of this would be if the change agent does not fully understanding the change recipient, and chooses not to rectify this set-back. The last factor is “resisting resistance”, which means that the change owners themselves are opposed to certain changes. (Ford, Ford & Angelo, 2008).
Multiple disciplines have analysed this phenomenon from different perspectives, producing a considerable amount of knowledge. 2.4 COMMUNICATION THEORY 2.4.1 Situational Crisis Communication Theory Situational Crisis Communication Theory theorised by W. Timothy Coombs. It is a theory in the field of crisis communication. It suggests that crisis managers should match strategic crisis reactions to the level of crisis accountability and reputational threat modelled by a crisis. Evaluating the crisis type, crisis history and prior relationship reputation will help crisis managers predict the level of reputational threat of an organization and how that organization’s publics will perceive the crisis and attribute crisis responsibility.
You may feel like you lost your identity when you lost your title. Even if you did not enjoy your position, when someone else makes the decision that you are to leave, you cannot help but experience rejection. Realistically though, you do not have the luxury to remain feeling dejected and rejected because it will take confidence and feeling competent to get that next career opportunity. The following are some ways of maintaining your self-confidence during transition and some helpful tips to remind you that you lost your job, not yourself: Expect and accept negative feelings. When we experience negative emotions like sadness, frustration, and hopelessness we either try to put those feelings out of our mind, or let them take over so that we feel engulfed by them and powerless against them.
This kind of conflict is called functional conflict, and considered as positive, because it enhances performance and identifies the weaknesses. Dysfunctional conflict, however, is confrontation or competition between groups that harms the organization or hinders attainment of goals or objectives (Belak, 1998). When one group of employees have “we-feeling” they can unite against the other group. This is the results of the differences in status and contradicting goals of the groups. Intergroup conflict usually leads to miscommunication or even to no communication, affecting an organization’s ability to function.
