Resistance to change is a natural behaviour, and should be expected by
employees in a company. When implementing improvement in processes
that are unefficient, and that demand from employees that they work in
a different way, resistance is inevitable. My question is thus:
Is suppose it is possible to quantify/measure this resistance at any
given time, for example by doing a survey in the company. If I am
right and such surveys exists, how can I obtain them?
There is no answer at this time.

A very interesting question and one that I am extemely inetrested in

practices, process lines or introduce new equipment that forced change
to practices significantly. Resistance was always strong no matter how
obvious the need for change and even middle management was not a great

 I hope you get a good answer but perhaps some GA's have seen it as a
little too complex and difficult.
