Title:  Toward Improving the Success of
Organizational Transformations
Abstract
A global survey of 3199 executives indicated that only one-third of the most recent organizational transformations was considered successful.  Furthermore, these executives reported devoting an average of six months in planning each intervention.  This address examines four potential causes of failures in organizational change, namely, (1) an unsystematic diagnosis to identify the unique organizational paradigm, (2) inattention to the relevant organizational change factors, (3) inadequate consideration of the global external context, and, (4) inappropriate statistical methods used in research designs.  Opportunities for organizational change researchers are proposed for each potential cause of failure.
