本文主要讲的是约翰•斯托克斯(John Stokes)的领导力，当前的情况就是这样一种情况，需要进行彻底的变更管理。首席执行官过去曾与约翰•斯托克斯(John Stokes)做出的激进决定共事。案例研究显示，约翰•斯托克斯(John Stokes)在做决定时甚至没有考虑首席执行官的意见。所以在目前的情况下，CEO的推荐可能不会被John Stokes认为是激进的。他拒绝CEO的建议，不是因为这是一个激进的决定，也不是因为他想展示自己是一个始终如一的决策者。本篇英国会计学论文代写文章由英国论文通AssignmentPass辅导网整理，供大家参考阅读。
The current situation is one such scenario where radical change management would be necessary. CEO in the past has worked with radical decisions that were taken by John Stokes. John Stokes is shown in the case study to be an individual who has made decisions even without considering the opinion of the CEO. So in the current situation the CEO recommendation might not be considered by John Stokes as being radical. He is not rejecting the CEO recommendation because it is a radical decision, or because he wants to show himself as a consistent decision maker.
Instead John Stokes seems to be rejecting the situation solely because it is challenging his own plan for the company. John Stokes seems to be taking up personal responsibility in this situation. It has been seen in research studies that an individual who ends up investing more for a bad situation is usually the one who would have endorsed the process that led to the situation in the first place. People assume more responsibility and ownership for some situations where the external environment would have influenced it such that any amount of strategic evolution could not have helped the situation (Samuelson, & Zeckhauser, 1988).In such cases assuming the process ownership and a feeling of being personally responsible could make the decision makers more consistent and stubborn in their actions. More investment leading to an even higher level of risk than before would result.
A process change for the company can be drawn based on the different theories and the psychological commitment angle that was discussed earlier. There would also be challenges in meeting this process change.
Step 1) Now, according to the life cycle theory hence, Openhium Enterprise started off selling a range of sports and leisure equipment and was operating in different areas of New Zealand. The company started off well under the leadership of John Stoke, and as per financial position the North Island stores are seen to be producing a better cash flow than the South Island stores. The North Island stores are developing and are seen to be meeting targets whereas Oamaru and Dunedin are not showing any new growth as well as struggling to meet targets.
