Concurrently, scrutiny of stakeholders has increased as some executives have been convicted of illegal actions in their companies and the compensation of executives seems to increasing while wages of others seems to be decreasing or leveling off. Thus, the ability to manage change while continuing to meet the needs of stakeholders and the market is a very important skill required by today’s leaders and managers. Significant organizational change occurs for example when an organization changes its overall strategy for success , adds or removes a major section or practice and or wants to change the very nature by which it operates.
It also occurs when an organization evolves through various life cycle just as people must successfully evolve through life cycles. For organizations to develop, they often must undergo significant change at various points in their development.
