Abstract:

The report is a theoretically oriented review of the literature on organizational change. Several propositions growing out of open systems theory are identified and then tested against the empirical literature on steady and changing states of systems. Change processes are examined at the individual, group, and organizational levels of analysis. An effort is made to specify propositions that apply across all levels of analysis. The implications of the literature and theory for those who wish to bring about change are given in propositional form. Author
