Organizacinių pokyčių supratimas ir vertinimas statutinėje organizacijoje
Change is an inevitable consequence of operating in dynamic environment. Lithuanian police and State Border guard organizations are going through permanent process of organizational changes what is a big challenge both for managers and employees. One of the most important skills leaders and managers should have in these days are the skills to lead and manage change, to understand the personal and the organizational dynamics involved in a change effort, to know the abilities to lead people through changes successfully. It is well known that management changes are more likely to succeed if organization use power tools: information, support and resources. Leaders and managers need greater awareness of how employees comprehend and think about changes in their organizations, what they valued and how are prepared for such changes. The purpose of the present study was to find out the peculiarities of comprehension and evaluation of organizational changes by employees in statutory organization. The sample used in this study comprised of 600 officers from two Lithuanian statutory organizations - Lithuanian police and State Border guard. The 13 items scale was developed to evaluate three aspects of changes: 1) overall attitude to changes in organization; 2) the level of being informed about ongoing changes in organization; 3) the comprehension of consequences from changes. Analysis of results shows that employees attitude to changes are quite contradictory – from one side they feel quite prepare for changes and see necessity for changes, but from the other side half of the employees don‘t trust in the capacity of managers to implement changes effectively and evaluate resources of organization to change purely. More then a half officers anticipate some threats in forthcoming changes – the rising job overload, the decreasing of their salary, and don‘t feel involved in planning and executing the changes. The correlational analysis reveal negative association between overall evaluation of changes from one side and evaluation of consequences of such changes and being informed about the process of changes.
