YoungGCU: LDR-825March 5, 2017The Foundation of Organic Organizational ChangeHow are the seeds of organizational change planted?

FOUNDATION OF CHANGE2Changing any organization is a leadership challenge, Little (2014) cited that organizations are significantly impacted by their workplace culture and the situational factors which determine its everyday conditions. Both internal and external factors are prominent forces that impact organizational change. Zakic, Jovanavic and Stamatovic (2008) explain that internal factors comprise the environment within the organization; therefore, the organization hascontrol over these factors and external factors are the total surroundings of an organization. These are circumstances that are beyond an organizations’ control, and may have an immediate or aberrant effect on the organization's business.Leadership is one of the most important internal factors for any organization. The internal factors of an organization essentially incorporate its positives and negatives and this starts at the top with leadership. These internal factors can influence how an organization meets its goals. Internal factors, for example, your business' notoriety, organizational administrative structure andstaffing, are an aftereffect of the way you maintain your business. External factors, are for example, changes in social, political, financial, and technological environments. These may impact employee interaction, production processes, and operational procedures. If an organization wants to continue to grow and remain a viable business, its leadership should be constantly innovative and able to adjust to new circumstances often beyond their control. Zakic, Jovanavic and Stamatovic (2008) expressed that leaders who are knowledgeable of these factors, and who are prepared to use or neutralize them, can then build organizational efficiency and loyalty from their employees.Strategic Development and Identification of Models/Interventions Successful organizations are frequently distinguished by an unobtrusive, constant level ofprogress as they confront the challenges of doing business in an ever changing climate.
