Hawai‘i. Today's leaders find they must continually realign their organizations to evolving strategic visions, missions, and goals critical to short-term performance. Simultaneously, they are faced with the complex task of adapting their organizations to rapidly changing competition for markets and resources, diverse workforce needs, government regulations, new technology, and a deteriorating environment. Organizational change involves a multi-disciplinary perspective and utilizes concepts and methods from such fields as management, sociology, anthropology, organizational development, technology, psychology, and comparative economics.
