But while senior managers understand the necessity of change to cope with new competitive realities, they often misunderstand what it takes to bring it about. According to Beer and Eisenstat (1990), an approach to change based on task alignment, which starts at the periphery and moves decidedly toward the executive board, is the most effective way to achieve long-lasting organizational change.
