Evolution Theory in Organisations?
Richard Tod
Having just joined this forum I was surprised that there is no theory or model listed for "evolution theory". Surely this is the key process by which organisations develop their individual characteristics and ethos?
In trying to mould an organisation into a new path or changed priorities, it is essential to know how it has evolved in the past and what forces will be required to shape the evolution for the future.
Evolution is not just the structural hierarchy of the organisation nor indeed its reward and benefit systems but rather the culture of social interaction, learned behaviours and pleasure optimisation, complex social interactions and sub cultural forces. (I joined a company once where membership of the baptist church was a prerequisite for any chance of promotion.)
Failure to understand the fundamental dynamics of the socio-economic culture and its evolving nature within and outside the organisation can only result in less than effective change.
