Perspectives on organizational change in Asia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the wide-ranging nature of organizational change research and practice with reference to the diverse context of Asia. Design/methodology/approach: Specific reviews of literature are highlighted which have identified the relative dearth of research which could be used to inform the theory and practice of management in Asia. The paper proceeds to offer an overview of the four papers included in this themed section on organizational change in Asia. Findings: After reviewing the four papers, a summary is presented of two key themes which emerge from this body of work, that is, in the process of considering various aspects of organizational change in Asia, the four papers tend to place a relatively heavy emphasis upon the ownership of organizations, and issues directly associated with human resource management. These two themes are identified as recommended areas for future research. Originality/value: This paper provides an introduction to the themed section on perspectives on organizational change in Asia. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
