Conceptual mutations of change management and the strategy–technology–management innovation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Change management theory arises from various scientific fields of socioeconomic sciences, expressed either implicitly or explicitly as an interdisciplinary subject. This theory-building contribution aims to critically examine fundamental theoretical dimensions of management by elliptically investigating different managing change theories and suggesting a refocused conceptual framework. Specifically, some notable managing change perspectives are presented, such as the learning organisation, the leading change context, and doing business in the age of chaos. We contend that the most profound problems for managing change originate from the organisation’s “Stra.Tech.Man” physiological core of innovation, which refers to the effective strategy–technology–management synthesis. Against this theoretical backdrop, a repositioned five-step Stra.Tech.Man change management process is proposed, which is structurally extended to all socioeconomic organisations.
