In examining management styles during the 1990s, there are three fundamental features that need to be analysed: endeavours made in changing the operations of organizations; the fact that these endeavours mostly resulted in failure; and the fact that most organizations may be characterized with risk aversion. As has been seen in previous chapters, organizations and managing organizations in the Western World is accompanied by a continuous state of turmoil since consecutive changes are viewed to be attempts at reversing what has previously been constructed. The traditional measures of business organization and the organization of public services are no longer feasible for dealing with how overseas competitors have increased within the industry. This chapter looks into how organizations have failed to proceed with successful transformations.
