Resistance management, a component of change management, aims to minimize or eliminate resistance to change. People in an organization may resist change for a number of reasons, including: (a) People comfortable in their current situation may be reluctant to risk that security; (b) People may concentrate on perceived negative outcomes of the change; (c) People may overestimate the value of what they have and underestimate the value of what they may gain by giving up what they have; (d) People may fear losing power, status, control, money, work, or work groups.
