3. A clear plan, one that is both strategic as well as operational. This will allow for the achievement of goals and deadlines to be met.

An orgainisation is based on the management’s philosophy, values, vision and goals. Theses objectives drive the orgainisation, the culture of the orgainisation has an impact on the type of leadership, communication and departmental dynamics.

A leader needs to adapt to situations and use techniques that are inclusive in order to avoid conflict and aids decision-making.
6.2 Create appropriate dissemination processes to gain commitment from stakeholders in an organisation In the implementation of a strategic plan, it is important that the company involves its stakeholders in the change process. This however, should be done with care as stakeholder involvement should be done based on their importance, influence to the change and the degree at which the proposed change will affect them. Peter Senge in his field book ‘Fifth Discipline’ elaborates on the levels of involvement of stakeholder groups based on the importance of the change to the organisation.

Project manager must be able to exert interpersonal influence, excellent communication and strong leadership skills. With the ability to handle stress, problem solving, behavioural characteristics can lead to inspire the project team to succeed and win the confidence of the client. The Project Management Institute defines project management as “the art of directing and coordinating human and material resources through the life of a project by using modern management techniques to achieve pre-determined goals of scope, cost, time, quality and participant satisfaction” (Smith 2002). Therefore, for a project to be successful, the methodology employed for the execution is very important. Requirements, statement of work, risk assessment and schedule estimates must align when during the initiation of a project.
It is important that supervisor must meet up with the staff for creating their performance plans. At this point, supervisor must avail the chance for explaining for the staff how their performance have a direct impact on how work goal can be attained. Monitoring: Supervisors must evaluate the overall progress of the staff at the time when it is due; instead it should be practised on a constant basis. Through evaluating it, this will provide an opportunity to the supervisor for making any adjustments or corrections where needed for achieving a successful
Weber’s bureaucratic principles states that an organization should have written rules, hierarchy of authority, system of task relationships and fair evaluation and reward. Refer to Figure 4 below. Explaining Weber’s bureaucratic principles, authority should be clearly defined as this would allow the managers to supervise and control their subordinates in an organization. Rules and regulations should be clearly specified in form of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to ensure that activities are performed in a particular manner which will facilitate coordination. Position and duties should be clearly specified, this would allow employees to know what is expected of them based on their expertise.
The team coordinator assures that specifications of a project are met and that team members work together so their efforts are channeled toward the ultimate goal. A coordinator can be expected to keep records, assign tasks and analyze processes. A coordinator makes sure the project is done efficiently, progresses stay on schedule and within budget, and meet the quality standards put forth by the company.

However, in the research of the Big Five personality factors, openness to experience is one important part of the model and stands for “creativity, unconventionality and broad-mindedness” (Barrick, Mount, & Judge; 2001). Applying this to the context of organizational change, Miller, Johnson and Grau (1994: 60) consider openness to be a “necessary, initial condition for successful planned change. Wanberg and Banas (2000: 135) state that openness is the “willingness to accommodate or accept the specific changes” and that it plays a critical role in influencing an employee’s readiness for change and therefore conclude that employees struggling to accept change show higher work irritation, are more likely to quit and are less satisfied with their
Once a team is designed and launched, it is critical to periodically assess team member’s work processes and interaction patterns in light of their progress toward achieving their goals. Team members should use task analysis to guide the allocation of work components. (Polzer, 2003, p.3) A leader “must assess what should happen during the team’s launch, and then proceed to the teams’ on going work processes, and advice about how to improve dysfunctional processes.”(Wageman, R. 2001). Critical events early in the group’s life serve as precedents that guide expectations for how to handle situations in the future. In most cases it is useful for the team to explicitly discuss what members must do and what they must never do.
