Abstract: Organisational adaptation and transformative change management in technology-based organisations is explored in the context of collaborative alliances. A re-reengineering approach is outlined in which a new competitive adaptability five-influence analysis approach under conditions of collaborative alliance, is described as an alternative to Porter's five-forces competitive rivalry analysis model.

Keywords: adaptability; competition; collaboration; disruptive technological change; reengineering; paradigm change; manufacturing indutry; organisational adaptation; transformative change management; technology firms; collaborative alliances; agility; agile manufacturing.
