Abstract

In the current dynamic, diverse global organisational environment, organisations face the challenge of having to embrace change, so as to comply with emerging business models, technological advancement, mergers and acquisitions. It is thus imperative that organisations have in place flexible organisational cultures that are swift to adopt and embrace change that demands greater levels and lengths of innovation and creativity. This enables organisations to take significant strides in opening up to change and compete in the increasingly competitive global economy. The study adopted the desk research approach, qualitatively reviewing extensive literature, which is to yield detailed reported information, and this conviction of enquiry enables a deeper understanding of the effectiveness. The findings thus reveal that changing organisational culture is an uphill task although a flexible organisational culture is fundamental to organisations existence and capability to compete in a dynamic environment. Organisational culture change is essential in supporting organisational change. In other words a flexible organisational culture is essential in ensuring a smooth change process.
