Privatization and outsourcing of public functions and utilities are the most important cultural factor that prevents change. Many Governments have recently shifted to the supply of public services through the private sector. They do this by outsourcing the services and sales of public corporations
While private companies with a primary focus on maximizing profits, they still do not have adequate incentives to provide better services to the population. This creates a conflict because the community service is not their top priority, and the public service does not receive adequate support, thus creating a society that does not work (McNabb, 2009, p. 53).
In addition, there is a tendency to reduce the level of interest of public servants as services and their productivity. This is mainly due to low wages compared to the private sector, where wages are high. Public employees, as such, cannot effectively service the community because they are often in the exit plan or are looking for ways to create additional funds (McNabb, 2009, p. 53).
Procedures and functions in the contemporary world are also changing with technological progress and globalization
The fact that public servants must use public works is hard work, wisdom, honesty and wisdom are not defined by the public service. Employees are not held accountable for their actions and they are not destined to take advantage of their operations. If a public instance element requires processing of a particular document, public employees can cause delays and the documents require more time than required
Such delays could also be caused by the late delivery of the correct documents in time or even in investigations (McNabb, 2009, p. 56). In addition, public administrators do not perform their duties in an economic and formal manner for wider public opinion. This is based on the fact that they do not respect the deadlines and are not responsible
Private workers have to meet and be held accountable for their actions. It’s something that’s missing in public corporations. The employee, as a result, performs duties at leisure and with pleasure, which leads to waste from time and other resources (McNabb, 2009, p. 56).
The most ideal strategy for the Governor will be education and communication, as it creates risks for the staff and citizens of the country with regard to the proposed changes. It will also inform them of the complexities involved in the necessary change, which will enable them to prepare effectively for the expected transformations and use them for growth and development
In addition, communication allows the parties to communicate information to each other. They can convey their ideas to the government while the government is at the same time informing them about the decisions of the top management (McNabb, 2009, p. 63).
Participation and citizens, as well as the participation of staff in the process of change, are mandatory, as they feel a part of change. It allows them to gain ownership of the activities and ideas that the leadership and the Government assume. This is done by inviting public ideas and opinions, creating a room for discussion prior to implementation
This step also creates confidence in the top management level and makes it easier to implement the proposed changes (McNabb, 2009, p. 63).
The empowerment of staff includes greater opportunities for staff to work on projects after they have been described. At the same time, the governor shows employees that they have confidence in them, and that they are impressed with their work, thus willing to entrust them with even greater and complicated duties, because he trusts them
This not only strengthens trust in the staff, but also creates a high level of loyalty, which facilitates the introduction and application of any changes (McNabb, 2009, p. 63).
