Organisational Change and Development

Hillary O. Odor


A good planning and genuine implementation of change is something that every organisation must do to remain competitive in the ever dynamic business environment. Unarguably, the impact of environmental dynamism accounts for most of the major cause of organisational change and development, which may either be spontaneous or is being influenced by a radical leader in his quest for a better business process solutions in reaction to a competitors action.This paper therefore, discusses organisational change and development in its simplest form by looking at the major causes of change, change agents, and the different approaches of change management. Incidentally, it has been discovered from the review of extant literature that rather than being a concept of its own, organisational development is one of the major approaches to managing organisational change. Therefore, this paper proposes that organisational development as a much broader concept and not just as one of the approaches to managing change and explore it various interventions mechanism, with their relative organisational behaviour implication.
