Abstract

This dissertation sets out to explore the concept of resistance to change as well as an organisational culture in order to discover the relationship between the two concepts. This will be achieved by thoroughly exploring the literature that exists on each concept in order to gain an in-depth analysis on each the concept both individually and collectively. After this is achieved, an analysis will be conducted on the successful organisation known as LeasePlan Infrastructure Services. LeasePlan Corporation is the European market leader in fleet and vehicle management with offices in 29 countries to date. This highlights the organisation’s ability to consistently adapt to the difficult environment that it operates in. For this reason, LeasePlan Infrastructure Services’ change management will be assessed in order to discover the levels of resistance to change that exists and how it was overcome. Following this will be a thorough analysis of LeasePlan Infrastructure Services’ organisational culture in order to discover if a strong relationship exists between the two concepts. Finally the results on both the existing literature and the information obtained from LeasePlan Infrastructure Services will be compared in order to develop a valid conclusion.
