The merging resulted in competition among the inside workers, which caused for low morale. According to Kubler-Ross Transition Model this phase of change is termed as 'Denial Stage'. The mental condition of employees of Ranbaxy during the change process is given in the following model Form the above model it is evident that Ranbaxy was in need of a process that could change the employees' denial towards acceptance in restricted time. Evaluation By analyzing the effectiveness, credibility and suitability of division of R&D department of Ranbaxy after the merging integration its content, context and process can be evaluated. By comparing pipeline and productivity of company prior to and after the change process the performance of R&D department can be determined. During the merging process the company CEO informed that their pipeline is empty and the objective of the change process is to increase the productivity. Once the change process was implemented and settled the results were amazing and Ranbaxy were having hundreds of clinical development projects, several product line extensions, lot of new chemical entities and were having promising pipelines. Conclusion From the above report it can be summarized that changing procedure selected by Ranbaxy in order to achieve their objectives which was determined after analyzing the macro environment of the company's merging with Daiichi Sankyo Company was appropriate. From the PESTLE analysis and the evaluation given above it is evident that the change was necessary for the company at that time.
