The first reason is the plan is not clear, the second reason is the plan does not emphasize the objective of change and the last reason is the top managers want to hide their goals or objectives.
The first reason is the unclear plan. The plan is focused only on the tasks that have to change. The plan does not explain why the tasks have to change, the plan writes a little about the aim of changing and the objectives are not clear or do not explain deeply.
Secondly, the plan does not emphasize the objectives of change, because when the plan prints out, it mistakenly does not print the objectives. Another reason is the top managers do not want to share the objective with their employees.
Thirdly, the top managers hide the objectives of change because the objectives of change do not align with the operational objectives of the middle management, and the top managers think the objectives are not important.

    Constituencies served by the organization will be the first to support or attack the proposed changes. It will be the leader’s responsibility to guide the discussion in a way that focuses on the data and the reasons behind creating the change. In this respect, the leader must show the value in how the proposed change will benefit the constituent or benefit the organization in such a way that it benefits the constituent in some manner. Implementation of the plan will require both time from those in the organization and direct costs.

    One example of how this claim does not support psychological egoism is through the case of strictly conscientious action. When someone desires something due to temptation and resists taking action, it is no longer desire that motivated this action; rather, it is their sense of duty that made them resist (Shafer-Landau, 2015). This means that the action no longer becomes part of self-interest because it does not benefit them. Another example of how opponents of psychological egoism will respond to this false claim would be through the motives of selfless people. It could be that our desire is to help people in need.…
