Organisational Structure & Change
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
Structural change is seen as a way to meet the challenges of the future that face many organisations. While some writers agree that broad-ranging structural change may not always transform an organisation or enhance its performance, others claim that innovation will be a major source of competitive advantage to organisations, particularly when they introduce into their structures the qualities of speed, flexibility, adaptability, agility and integration. This fact sheet has been produced by the consortium research programs research activity 4: "Cultures and structures." Its aim is to help RTOs develop a greater understanding of the impact of organisational structure on their organisational capability. The fact sheet presents a range of views on the benefits and problems of structural change.
