Organisational Change: A Longitudinal Perspective

Seth Allcorn, Ph.D., Howard F. Stein and Carrie M. Duncan

Despite the importance of social and historical context for understanding organisational dynamics, organisational consulting and research continues to be dominated by cross-sectional approaches that focus organisational change efforts largely on the present and the near future. In this article, we describe a longitudinal approach to studying organisational change that maps change processes across time. We ground our conceptual framework in psychoanalytic object relations theory and a detailed case example that illustrates change over time as a consequence of changes in leadership. This approach provides practitioners and researchers with a framework for better understanding the historical context of current organisational problems and better crafting organisational change interventions.
