(p.172) 7 Strategic Change: Intelligent Adaptation
Integrating Mission and Strategy for Nonprofit Organizations

James A. Phills

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the challenge of strategic change, whether internally or externally driven. In particular, a meta-framework that identifies three specific types of knowledge necessary for leading the process of intelligent strategic adaptation: a theory of organizational performance, a theory of change, and a theory of intervention, is reported. The basic types of skills and knowledge that leaders need if they are to be effective agents of strategic change are also examined. The Dashman Company is used as a case study that shows the three generic categories of skill and knowledge.

Keywords:   strategic change, intelligent strategic adaptation, theory of organizational performance, theory of change, theory of intervention, Dashman Company, skill, knowledge
