The report discusses the role of the leader in the context of change management. The leader plays a multifaceted rule when it comes to change management.

In this context it is the purpose of this report to also understand issues that employees face. Resistance is a major issue faced by in change management. Resistance is created because of a lack of transparency in the context of change management.
Some of the issues that can happen in the future with respect to change management are the issues of trust or the culture of trust. Leaders could face these challenges in the future because almost all organizations are working at a global level now. All business organizations have internationalized and this has led to the situation of a business being spread out over many nations and cultures. This might make it difficult for the employees to trust the management. In the global internetworking, change management also cannot be generalized to all the internationalized business units.
Every business unit might have some individual aspect that has to be change managed and also business units would have some general aspects. So when planning for change management the leaders will be challenged in integrating leadership across all the internationalized units. The managers or leaders at all internationalized units have to be brought into the change management circumference and have to act as enablers with respect to their units. A hierarchy of change management as will be achieved in this case will come with its own complexities.
