The present study seeks to explore the opinions of the respondents in private and public sectors about the reasons, sources, and results of change of resistance, and the strategies which can be used by the administration to reduce resistance to change. The study also tries to know the factors that may influence their attitudes, such as the party they are employed by, their qualifications, gender, experience, training, and age. The study tackles the reasons for change of resistance and how these reasons can be handled, as well as the relation between those reasons and the existing personal and organizational characteristics. This study is probably more comprehensive as it covers both public and private sectors.
