Change Management and Decreases in Innovative Spirit

Any time there is a change in management at the corporate level it can cause a conflict with productivity, efficiency and innovation. For those companies that rely on innovative spirit to propel their profits such decreases can spell disaster for the department or division. Consider if you will a project manager who is rapidly reassigned to another division or another important project. The project team may not gel as well with the new brand new manager and that means the efficiency in productivity in the project flies out the window. Worse off, often we see a decrease in the innovative spirit and that can cause a disaster and even cause the project to fail. All too often we find that project managers in large corporations become part of the innovative backbone of the endeavor. If there are rapid changes this can cause a disarray amongst the employees and put the project behind its scheduled goals. As the team works to make up for lost time the motivation can also be lost and therefore the innovative spirit is simply not there when and if the team runs into a problem that is not easily solvable. And change management case studies especially in cases with project managers involved decreases in the innovative spirit must be considered. Think of this in 2006.
