Navigating Change Through Formal Structures and Systems

Navigating Change Through Formal Structures and Systems

Two principle impediments to effective and lasting organizational change are structures and systems within the organization. In other words, for change to become a part of an organization, managers often have to change the formal and informal structures of an organization to better support the change initiative. In this Discussion Question, find an organization in KSA that completed a change in their organization within the last three years. Discuss how they changed, or modified, their formal and informal structures and systems to ensure the intended change became a part of the organization’s culture. Then discuss how changing these formal and informal structures fostered, impaired, or facilitated change within the organization. Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations along with two scholarly peer-reviewed references in supporting your answer. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references. You need to reply to at least two peer Discussion Question post answers to this weekly Discussion Question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required. Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines.
