From the past 12 weeks study, I learnt the organizational change is not always 100% success, sometimes it comes with failure. However with the pressure of market competition, technology updates frequently and organization’s own growth needs, change may fail, but without change organization can not survive.Therefore, know how to change in what way to change is very important . And the Chapter I chose to resonated is Chapter 8
Throughout this chapter studying, I have fully understood three further approaches to change mentioned in this chapter which are change management, contingency and processual approaches. Typically, the change management and contingency is linked to the director image and the processual approach is linked to the navigator image.
Change management approaches focus on strategic, planned and usually large-scale organizational change. Currently change management includes both organizational change management processes and individual change management models. This approach needs organizations to ensure the organizational change effort is successful, including to ensure a clear vision and goals for project, and to modify systems in the organization to more effectively achieve the goals. In additional, change management activities can range a planned, structured and explicit approach to unplanned and implicit.
The contingency approaches represent another variant of change management approaches. This approach performs as director image which they maintain that successful organizational changes outcomes can be achieved. This contingency approach to management is based on the idea that there is no one best way to manage and that to be effective, planning, organizing, leading and controlling must be tailored to the particular situations faced by an organization.
The processual approach vies change as the continuous, often political process. The way change unfolds is contextual and its outcomes are the result of complex interplay of different interests. This approach usually uses in providing analysis and understanding of changes
This chapter states the organizational change can not be rush and it has to be in order and need a detail plan in order to implementation. And by implement a right tool of change management organization will definitely gain enhance change process in order to sustain competitive advantage.
