n Management Dynamics : Journal of the Southern African Institute for Management Scientists - A three-phased approach for developing Dynamic Organisational Fitness

Volume 13, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1019-567X



In fast-changing business environments, organisations are often engaged in both adaptive (reactive) and inventive (shaping) change processes, and these require different types of organisational fitness capabilities.

This paper explores how organisations can develop dynamic fitness capabilities, and proposes a logical three-phased approach to develop Dynamic Organisational Fitness (DOF) capabilities on a continuous basis.
