Abstract

This paper looks at perceptions and understanding in organisations through three aspects of their behaviour; Change management, Structure, Communication. Three case studies of organisations are used throughout this paper to show practical examples of the points made. These are; Oticon, Amazon, Cordia LLP. Specific points identified within the assignment are: Realism, relativism and perception are part of the processes that explain how the world and knowledge is viewed. Experiences and perceptions influence differently people’s interactions and their viewpoints of other people, situations and organisations. The views of an individual affects how they operate/behaviour which can affect how an organisation exists or goes forward. An example of this as influencing positive change in an organisation is at Oticon where Kolind introduced a radical movement for the company to become a creative, innovative, knowledge-based organisation. An example of a vision of change driving an organisation forward to a future reality is that of Amazon where the founder, Jeff Bezos, had the vision of opportunity through technological advances. Cordia LLP demonstrates that an organisation may not change just because the name changes.
