Scenario Question?

Dan is an employee at a regional mid-size computer

company that has recently been sold to a larger, national computer manufacturing

corporation. Dan is in charge of computer production orders, and because of this recent

shift in ownership, his department’s day-to-day operations are about to change

drastically. Dan has been an employee of the mid-size company for 10 years, and thinks

that the current way of doing things in his department does not need any improvement.

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Well, there is always room for improvement! Some older employees get set in their ways and it wouldn't hurt to at least listen to new ideas.

    Lately there has been so much talk about generation X, the millenial, etc. employees. I wonder if you saw the special on 60 minutes the other evening?

    There is, of course, the saying "if it works, leave it alone" or "if it ain't broke don't fix it." (not the best grammar, of course!) Change just for the sake of change is not good but "the new broom" (new supervisor) will want to "sweep clean" (or have input.)

    Often when there is a new owner the employees in the take-over will have to "proove" themselves.

    SraJ, gave you a great answer. There are definitely two sides to consider.

    We say, "if it works, don't mess with it."

    And we also say, "Just because it always has been done that way, doesn't mean there isn't a better way."

    I have always found that when there is a problem to be solved, those involved need to sit down at a table with a "fresh piece of paper" and TOGETHER work out the solution.
