Blue Train There once was a blue train that is currently defunct(adj.), but in its prime, it was the most magnificent train ever built. The train could carry one hundred cars and two conductors.

...elements of the model that are seen as likely to be the source of major (“transformational”) change and those that are more likely to be the source of change that is experienced as incremental (“transactional”). The four transformational factors are external environment, mission and strategy, leadership, and organizational culture. These are intentionally located at the top of the diagram that represents that model. The “Burke-Litwin model” examines organizational change and performance. It provides a link between an assessment of the wider institutional context and the nature and process of change within an organization. It makes the following key points: (1) the external environment is the most powerful driver for organizational change; (2) changes in the external environment lead to significant changes within an organization – its mission and strategy, its organizational culture and its leadership; and (3) changes in these key factors lead to other changes within an organization – changes to structure, systems and management practices. Together these changes affect motivation, which in turn impacts on individual and organizational performance. The model describes 12 organizational variables (incorporating the 7 variables of the 7-S model) and the relationships between them. Each of the variables interacts and a change in any one of them can eventually impact on the others. Organizational culture is one of many situational variables that have emerged as pivotal in......
