Resistance to Change
Once bureaucratic organizations are created, they tend to resist change. TII is resistance not only makes bureaucracies virtually impossible
to eliminate but also contributes to bureaucratic enlargement. Because of the assumed relationship between size and importance, officials tend to press for larger budgets and more staff and office space. To justify growth. administrators and managers must come up with more tasks for workers to perform. Resistance. to change may also lead to incompetence. Based on organizational policy, bureaucracies tend to promote people from within the organization. As a consequence. a person who performs satisfactorily in one position is promoted to a higher level in the organization. Eventually, people reach a level that is beyond their knowledge, experience, and capabilities.
