The heavy forces which are in arrears Kodak’s decision to change to digital photography for the outside location which is required a variation in the Kodak plan to modification in digital photography. The ordinal camera thriven in the 1990s and it cleaned people from the method of captivating photos. The marketing is updated regularly and filled up with digital cameras and the tools are according to the preferences of the customer. Kodak did not participate in the market. It was signed to create a loss to the market in the organisation. The company has a chance to create digital imaging products like micrographics, printers, digital printing, and equipment for commercial usage (Kelby, 2020).
There are lots of issues faced by the Eastman Kodak company the main issues behind and problem are in the procedure of altering to digital technology in the process of production. The company is failed in setting or establishing the market share and market management which is in the digital area. It is the threat which is with the immediate or the there is a rapid diversification in the technology. It is unable to decide whether it should b go along with the organisation and also faced the need for suitable strategies which is in order to cope with the threat of existing market competitors (Fonseca, & Domingues, 2018).
Kodak Company are unsuccessful to change their awareness of the thoughts about which they had on the cameras. There determination for the invention which was achieved to the point for making the numerical cameras and also, they have unsuccessful to watch the digital camera from the view of the digital technology which was taken for Kodak depressed the street of insolvency back in 2012. The organisation is not able to follow the preferences of their customers which was the main problem in the change management perspectives in the company (Ho, & Chen, 2018).
The potential for change at the kodak the main barrier of the company was the CEO who was at the top of management and who ignored all the changes and do nothing about the barriers about what to happen the reason for that they have a strong stuck among the past success and thought and the problem was that it could not take them down because that was the strongest in the market.
The company must have given attention to the proper recognition of customer preferences and it would have made company life simple in the intensely competitive company market. It was focused which needed to be shifted towards the technology largely with the innovation in the continuous way and also the product development. The organisation needs to minimize the cycle time in the process of manufacturing with the latest updates in technology. The company also needs to be away from the existing scope of development. The company is still using traditional photography and faces issues in adopting digital technology. The company needs to make sure that it can perfectly be aligned with the needs of its customers in an effective way.
