A Holistic Equilibrium Theory of Organization Development
Yang, Baiyin; Zheng, Wei
Online Submission
This paper proposes a holistic equilibrium theory of organizational development (OD). The theory states that there are three driving forces in organizational change and development--rationality, reality, and liberty. OD can be viewed as a planned process of change in an organization so as to establish equilibrium among these three interacting forces. Existing OD theories, concepts and their implications for OD are explained from the perspective of this theory. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
