since his graduation in finance. He has spent around five years in that organization.
With the passage of time Sameer has learnt the ways to survive in such a conventional
bureaucratic environment.
Haris, an experienced and competent employee who has recently joined this
organization as a manager accounts. His reputation is good and famous for organizing
and improving the daily operations in the previous organization. He has been appointed
on a pay scale with benefits better than the last one. Haris is self-motivated and
determined to bring changes in the department that will increase the productivity and
efficiency of accounts.
In an informal welcoming ceremony, Haris introduces himself and wants to be familiar
with other staff members of the department. He also asks for better suggestions from
each subordinate to make it a better work place. He finds Sameer reluctant to accept
new challenges. Sameer suggests his newly appointed manager not to bring any
change in the current system as it will put them in trouble. Sameer criticizes the different
policies made by the higher management. He also shows his belongings to a political
party indirectly.

subordinates who are not in the interest of the company and do not want to work as a
team. Haris says to him that it will be taken seriously if he tries to be a barrier in
implementing new system that is more effective and productive. Haris warns Sameer to
leave or improve.
How could Sameer be motivated?

Do you think bringing a change in the existing environment is a threat? Why or
