Abstract: The form of an organisational change may be described as evolutionary, revolutionary or as some other perspectives. This research seeks to uncover the form of an ERP-related organisational change, as perceived by different stakeholders. Through a qualitative longitudinal case study, an alternative view on the form of change is uncovered, which view distinguishes between degree and pace of change.

Keywords: organisational change; evolutionary change; revolutionary change; enterprise resource planning; ERP implementation; information systems; change management.
