Abstract

This thesis aims to explore the various approaches to change management and the individual and organisational issues that arise in the implementation of change initiatives. The aim is to examine the link between how change is implemented and the level of acceptance of change. In particular, the research explores two styles of change management; a top-down approach that is directive and does not consult with or involve staff, and a bottom-up approach that adopts a participative style. In addition, the research examines employees’ perceptions of change and the significance attributed by staff to their involvement in the change process. The research was conducted in a Vocational Education Committee.
