Item Type: Article


The organisational change is a phenomenon which has gained attention from theoretistsand practioners alike. The paper analyzes the notion of change, oragnizational change and types ofchange. The paper is of theoretical nature. Several authors have perceived organisational changeas a ?response? to an organisation?s internal and/or external environment. The paper investigatesdifferent perspectives of emergent change basing on Kanter et al., (1992) Kotter (1996) and Luecke(2003). The author highlights that these three models have some common features: a development ofvision and leadership. On the other hand Strobel (2015) refutes the argument that there is ?one bestway? that can be applied in all situations and organisations, when managing change, and promotesthe idea of ?one best way? for each situation and organisation individually. Moreover the drivers andtypes of organizational change are presented. Several forces driving organisational change have beenidentified and they basically involve factors with regards to both the internal and external environmentof an organisation.
