Year: 2001

This paper focuses on efforts to bring about major changes in the way that organizations function. These efforts, which often involve altering many facets of organization including structures, policies, procedures, technologies, role design and cultural patterns are increasingly common as organizations adapt to accelerating rates of change in markets, technologies and competitive pressures. While such changes may be necessitated by turbulent operating environments, they are also profoundly disruptive both to the organizations and to the people functioning within them.
