Mr. Rajendar Prasad is the head of the accounting section in a fast growing manufacturing company. In the
section, he has 30 employees under his control. The company has three hundred employees mostly drawn
from nearby areas. The recent changes in science and technology have prompted management to introduce
mechanization in the accounting section, Mr. Prasad is asked to explain the importance of having a
computer in the accounts department to his employees. The introduction of computer, undoubtedly, affects
the lives of all those who are working in the section. Some fifteen employees will have to restructure their
job responsibilities; ten employees require training in the use of computer and the remaining five employees
may have to knock the doors of other companies for jobs. Of course, all these chances though painful, take
place gradually. This situation is quite similar to another situation witness by Mr. Prasad some time back.
Eight months ago, the company has hired a computer on lease basis to handle the production inventory. The
management is highly pleased with the arrangement, for the inventory processing has improved terribly
afterwards. But unfortunately, the production people have resisted the move strongly. Now, Mr. Prasad is in
a tight corner. Strangely, he is entrusted with the responsibility of introducing the computer in his own
section.
Question: If you were the section head, entrusted with the responsibility of installing the computer, how
would you go about informing your employees about the proposed change and make them accept it?
