MetadataShow full item record
The study was instituted to examine the relationship between the Organizational culture, Change processes and the effectiveness of the implementation of change conducted in Makerere University Business School. It was prompted by the fact that, although change management is a pronounced competence of most successful organizations in the world, most institutions underestimate the influence of the organizational culture, capabilities and change processes on change implementation. Basing on a wide review of literature on organizational culture, organizational capabilities, change processes and change implementation, a foundation for the development of the conceptual model was created and tested for robustness. A cross sectional survey was undertaken using a stratified sample of 220 respondents. Subsequently, the data was analyzed using a correlation and regression model. The results of the study variables; organizational culture, Organizational capabilities, change processes and change implementation revealed a significant positive correlation between all the study variables. The regression model showed that organizational capabilities were a significant predictor, explaining 60% of the variance in change implementation. It is therefore recommended that for better change implementation in MUBS, more emphasize be taken to improve on the organizational capabilities of the Institution.
