Organizational Change. Symposium 19. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on organizational change consists of three presentations. "Institutionalizing Organizational Change Through Cascade Training: Implications for Human Resource Development (HRD) Research" (Ronald L. Jacobs, Darlene Russ-Eft, Suhail Zidan) proposes the institutionalization of change should be addressed as a major part of the change process and suggests that cascade training be used to address institutionalization issues. "Shock to the System: Analyzing Organizational Change Using the Construct of Awareness Development" (Martin B. Kormanik, Annette K. Sturdevant) reports a study that shows that by using the cycle of awareness development to examine individual employees' awareness development around an organizational transition issue, it may be possible to take a distributed view of organizational-level change. "Connotative Meanings of a Change Agenda" (S. Ramnarayan) reports on a major change program that the corporate office of a large manufacturing organization launched in its five plants. The paper describes how, though a common approach had been worked out, a study conducted eight months later showed that the different plants had followed different problem solving approaches and reached different outcomes. It examines how units develop connotative meanings of a change agenda and how these meanings influence the effectiveness of change implementation. All three papers include substantial bibliographies.
