Abstract

This reflective case history explores the lessons learned by a medium-sized manufacturing site in the UK from a rightsizing initiative in 2008 and another in 2016. The 2008 lessons around the softer HRM topics of employee morale, skills gaps, and survivors struggling led to a different OCD approach being used for the 2016 rightsizing exercise. The author, a principal change agent who helped facilitate both OCD initiatives, critically reflects upon the respective change agency processes from an EBP perspective.
