The paper "A Qualitative Analysis of Australian Public Sector Organisational Change" is a good example of a management article. Change in any organization is normally characterized by a number of challenges that normally increase the complexity of the process. However, according to Lewin’ s theory of group dynamics, these challenges can be minimized by considering the group approach in organizational change rather than an individual approach. The Hossan et al. (2013) article focuses on demonstrating the importance of a group approach other than an individual approach when employing a change in an organisation.
The paper is based on Lewin’ s theory of group dynamics which demonstrates the importance of focusing on a group while employing changes in an organization, rather than individuals whose behaviours are normally influenced by the groups they belong to. The paper empirically reappraises the importance of Lewin’ s theory of group dynamics in the context of local government technology-related changes. The authors qualitatively examined the processes of change management in five Melbourne Metropolitan city councils in Australia. They conducted 23 semi-structured face-to-face interviews with top management officials in different organizations involved in this change.
The research revealed poor group involvement in the change and hence, delays in the process of change in the government sector compared to other private sectors. The three authors demonstrate their great knowledge in organization change management thus, they are able to provide reliable recommendations based on the research findings. The paper has adopted a standard research paper structure which starts with an abstract containing various subtitle that summarizes the entire structure of the paper. This section clearly defines the purpose of the paper, its research methodology, the research findings, its limitation, its implications and the paper's originality or its founded theory.
The paper then provides a detailed introduction that focuses on organizational change and the importance of embracing a certain strategy while employing a change in the organization.
