The reason #5 of Kotter’s process would be a challenge goes hand in hand with reason #2. There are obstacles in place at several levels organizationally and across directorates that can include lack of buy in at all levels, lack of cooperation between directorates, and potential statutory or regulatory obstacles that I am unaware of. 17. The Coast Guard needs to standardize and enforce spend plans and eliminate spend down. Spend down has proven to be a wasteful, inefficient, and costly way to manage Coast Guard funds.
This creates a meaningful and realistic plan for greater time management and something to aim for while undertaking tasks for the greatest efficiency. 2. Delegate tasks - By understanding who are better at particular tasks than yourself, delegating can be implemented as a major time saving technique. Providing them with the resources and support they require, they can get the job completed just as well or even better than you could under time pressures. While delegating tasks, you can focus on more important issues that have a larger consequence of not completing.
There is a product developed at the end of each tier giving the team a better vision of the project. Tier work allows the PM to communicate a solid delivery date. The risks of the Waterfall approach include the impossibility to change the project without adding time or expense.
This phase encompasses developing a thorough plan, giving this plan to employees, develop a timeline, and fully develop communication skills. Phase 2 involves communicating with those that may be affected with the change, assess driving and restraining forces, and responding to concerns about projected change. In phase 3, a change agent should be identified. Change agents do not always have to be a manager or employee of the organization. If looking at an external change agent, always take into consideration that external change agents can be more objective than internal ones, but can be costly, take more time to assimilate duties and be seen as a threat by other team members (Mitchell, 2013).

Another drawback is the lack of stable horizontal linkages between departments. Another drawback is the presence of conflicts between different groups and units. Conflicts often inherent in the structure of the organization. Units or individual managers, are in conflict, not only can promote the rupture of communication links within the organization, but to use a communication network to achieve its goals in the fight with other units or leaders.
The Bureaucracy in our country is largely disapproved of throughout our country. Americans are extremely critical of the Bureaucracy and claim that it is not very effective in getting the done. The Bureaucracy is expensive and ineffective, and this inefficiency stems from a variety of factors. The main problems of bureaucracy are stiff rules and regulations, impersonality, customer dissatisfaction, slow decision making and limited capabilities of workers. In the bureaucracy, selected individuals are the decision makers instead of elected authorities and representatives.
As stated earlier, the Bureaucracy has terms being thrown at them, like, “lazy”, “inefficient” and “inept” (Milward, Rainey 3), being criticized as you are trying to execute your job can be a challenge. Another challenge, The Bureaucray can face is dealing with politics within public agencies (Milward, Rainey 2). The Bureaucracy has to prove that, public agencies are not “wasteful” or “meddlesome” (Milward, Rainey 2). The public agencies are blamed for elevated costs, however, while they are being blamed, they have a strong reason to need the money. These agencies need the money to put towards roads and highways to be built to fixed (Milward, Rainey 6) , although this is not a tiny issue, it should be a
Team managers must hold a team together when different levels of trust, experiences, expectations, personalities and cultures clash (Joinson, 2002). Management styles that worked successfully with traditional teams is often not effective in leading virtual teams (Ferreira, et al., 2012). Hence, managers being used to keeping tabs on employee’s progress can feel uncomfortable in the beginning and need to change their management style. According to Anderson, a balance between a transactional and transformational approach has to be found (Anderson, 2012). This means that on the one hand administrative matter are addressed and tasks are optimized to maximize efficiency, on the other hand the ideas of team members and suggestions need to be
