Abstract:In organisational change processes people inside organisations have to decide about difficult and possibly conflicting issues. These issues concern not only choices about the most effective or efficient change process but also about the moral responsibilities associated with it. This brings along an intricate and paradoxical situation for the decision makers of the organisational change process. They have a functional responsibility to comply with the goals of the organisation. They also have moral responsibilities when their decisions affect people inside and outside of the organisation. On top of this they have limited freedom of action because several groups can influence the decision making. This problematic situation leads to the following central research question:
How can decision makers deal with moral questions which arise between interests of the organisation and interests of employees in processes of organisational change? Because of the nature of the central research question an inductive research design is necessary. This study seeks to gain insights into the way managers can deal with different responsibilities when making decisions about organisational change processes.
