Usually organisational change is forced by some major outside driving force, e.g. substantial cuts in funding, dealing with new markets/clients, need for dramatic increases in productivity/services, etc. Typically, organizations must undertake organisation-wide change to evolve to a different level in their life cycle, e.g., going from a highly reactive, entrepreneurial organization to a more stable and planned development.
