Improvement means change! The apparel industry is faced with many hurdles and roadblocks to any improvement, whether it's launching a specific kaizen initiative or for an overall Lean transformation project. When results are not realized as planned or even when achieved but not sustained over time, workers easily revert back to old habits. It is easy to blame management, other workers, or the project itself.
This book elaborates the fundamental aspects and sources of resistance to change. It discusses how to address resistance proactively in the change lifecycle with targeted tactics for mitigating objections to change. It also provides a detailed change management strategy to prevent and overcome resistance before it occurs.
