A Study Of Factors Influencing Organisational Change: A River Island Study (2008)

The study assesses employees’ perceptions on factors influencing organisational changes and the internal and external factors causing these changes. A study conducted on the retail store River Island, located in a major UK city was undertaken to gain a more in-depth study on organisational change within a specific retail store, where the literature to date serves to fail. The study researches literature on key internal and external factors influencing organisational change, giving the reader a better understanding on the reasons for organisational change and its effects upon organisational structures.

The literature examined consists of various studies on organisational changes in a range of industries. An investigation was carried out at the River Island store to establish employee perceptions on organisational changes within their working environment and the effects it has had on them. This investigation is undertaken via interviews of managers and front-line employees to give a variety of views and opinions. Findings of the study are discussed and comparisons made. Limitations and further recommendations for research are also examined. The aims of the study are:

  • To assess employee’s perceptions on factors influencing organisational change
  • To investigate the internal factors influencing organisational change
  • To investigate the external factors influencing organisational change
  • Recommendation for practitioners and researchers for future research
  • 10,000 words – 42 pages in length
  • Good use of literature
  • Good analysis
  • Fully referenced throughout
  • Excellent piece of work
