MANAGING CHANGE IN THE ORGANISATIONAL CONTEXT

The topic of managing change is one that comes closest to describe the totality of a manager's job. Practically everything a manager does is in some way concerned with implementing change.

  • Hiring a new employee - Changing the work group
  • Purchasing a new piece of equipment - Changing work methods
  • Rearranging work station - Changing work flows

All require knowledge of how to manage change effectively.

Organizational change refers to a modification or transformation of the organization's structure, processes or goods. Flexibility requires that organizations be open to change in all areas, including the structure of the organization itself. In a flexible organization, employees can't think of their roles in terms of a job description. They often have to change the tasks they perform and learn new skills. The most flexible organizations have a culture that values change and managers who know how to implement changes effectively.
