Access from EThOS:
The claim that there is a need for continuous organizational change has become a modern day cliche. In particular it has been taken up by influential management gurus who have provided popular versions of debates that have been going on within the academic literature for numerous years. The most influential of these debates is that of the post-bureaucratic organization. This shares with the guru models of change the assumption that a radical epochal transition is taking place in the way organizations and working relationships are structured. However despite the attention which these claims have received there is still relatively little detailed empirical evidence against which to evaluate them.
