Organizational Change Processes: A Bibliography With Commentary.
Baldridge, J. Victor
This bibliography deals with a wide variety of organizational dynamics and is related to the definition of organizational change developed by the Stanford Center's Organizational Change project. This definition, discussed in detail, focuses on deliberate change instituted to reformulate official policy. A topical outline of the bibliography is provided. Included under the heading "General Problems of Analyzing Organizational Change" are discussions of (1) reasons why organizational theoriests have generally neglected the problem of organizational paradigms, (2) deliberate action by authorities and partisans, (3) organizational conflict as a promoter of change, and (4) the interrelation of organizational subsystems. Included under the heading "Changes in Various Subsystems" are discussions of (1) changing organizations by changing individuals, (2) partisan groups of agents of organizational change, (3) system changes planned by authorities (long-range planning and decision-making), (4) technology as a source of organizational change, and (5) the organization and its environment.
