Thinking Made Easy: Management and Change
            Let us begin our discussion with the definition of change in organizations. Change according to Jick (1993) is a planned or unplanned response to pressures and forces. Change is inevitable and organizations undergo change. Technological, economic, social, regulatory, political and competitive forces push organizations to change. Because of the ever changing business and industry situation and environment, change has become a requirement for organizations to remain strong and to succeed. Globalization has also made the pressures more intense (cited ... market research, surveys and trends
Implementing Planned Change: An Empirical Comparison of ...
Understanding the process of planned change is imperative for managers who are charged with implementing strategic initiatives that drive the success of the organization. Planned change refers to a premeditated, agent-facilitated intervention intended to modify organizational functioning for a more favorable outcome (Lippit, Watson, and Westley 1958). This perspective largely reflects the teleological category of change theory advanced by Van de Ven and Poole (1995) in which organizational change is achieved primarily through the adaptive behavior of individuals in light of internally set goals. While other perspectives stress ... market research, surveys and trends

Workforce 2000, indicates that 85% of all net entrants to the U. S. work force between 1985 and 2000 will be women, African Americans and immigrants whereas white males will comprise only 15% of the net additions.[1] Forty-seven percent of the total work force will be women and 62% of all women will be ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

If The Cap Holds: The Long Term Political Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill
With the latest "solution" to the runaway oil well continuing to work, we may be seeing the beginning of the end of this environmental nightmare. If not now, then by the end of the summer, the media will focus principally on the clean-up from this nation's worst environmental catastrophe since the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Both the oil leak and its clean-up are major events that will have significant political impact. One impact has been increasing mistrust of large institutions like BP and the U.S. government. Another impact has been the collective realization that technology will not protect us from the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What works best - planned organisational change or creating the ...
Goran Ekvall defined the requirements for an organisational culture that would provide the right conditions for creativity and innovation to grow. Having studied creativity and innovation, (and being an ENTP) I believe that the most effective approach to making change happen is to create the right conditions e.g. letting people have room to breath (not micro managing). letting them have time to think and sharing information and plans etc. As Lao Tzu said a couple of thousand years ago ' A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves'. ...

The pain of transition can become an insurmountable hurdle; anything we can do to reduce the pain, makes it more likely we'll stay the course. Create a support structure. Have a plan of action to reduce the chaos. Celebrate every little success. Reward effort, even when the results weren't perfect. ---------------------------------- Example of a Planned, Systemic Change Process -- Action Research A typical planned, systemic (and systematic) organizational development process often follows an overall action research approach (as described below). There are many variations of the action research approach, including by ...
