Organizations Amenable to Change

Though this is not a general rule, I believe that organizations that focus on employee engagement and are employee centric in their outlook are more prone to taking change initiatives in their stride.

Characteristics of Organizations Amenable to Change

There are some factors which make organizations more amenable to change. I list some of them below:
1. Learning ones not the learned ones
2. Relatively small in size rather than the big ones
3. Flat rather than pyramidal in structure
4. With dynamic leader rather than with experienced ones
5. With younger staff rather than older staff
6. New entrants rather than established ones
