Quality management in the 21st century – implementing successful change
by John S. Oakland, Steve J. Tanner
International Journal of Productivity and Quality Management (IJPQM), Vol. 1, No. 1/2, 2006

Abstract: Experience shows many change initiatives fail to deliver. They are not always a total failure, but they get stalled, misdirected, or only partially achieve the required results. As the speed of change in the external environment increases by the minute, the authors set out to identify the common success factors for managing change. The main purpose of the research reported in this paper was to examine the apparent gap between often seen approaches and 'best practice', the output being a helpful framework to support future initiatives. This led to an Organisational Change Framework being developed, based on the experience of many organisations.
