  4. 4. The Pioneering Phase (contd…) <ul><li>CRISIS </li></ul><ul><li>Sense of intimacy is lost, conflict develops between old and new generations </li></ul><ul><li>Grows complexity no longer informal way of managing </li></ul><ul><li>Chaos and disorganization increase </li></ul><ul><li>Loss of confidence in pioneer’s ability </li></ul><ul><li>New staff, want some decision making power </li></ul><ul><li>Pioneer and original staff resist change </li></ul><ul><li>Motivation decreases and conflicts increase </li></ul>
  5. 5.

Management cracks down </li></ul><ul><li>Often hidden resistance, loss of vitality and productivity </li></ul><ul><li>Corridor gossip and “cold crisis” can set in </li></ul><ul><li>Or a “hot crisis” of more open challenge and resistance </li></ul>

  8. 8. The Associative Phase <ul><li>Characteristics </li></ul><ul><li>Interdependent relationships with other organizations and the environment (shared destiny) </li></ul><ul><li>Moving beyond constraints of competition to possibilities of collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>Acceptance o a wider responsibility </li></ul><ul><li>Internally similar to the Integrated Phase </li></ul><ul><li>Challenges: power blocks through strategic alliances </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Associative Phase (contd…) <ul><li>Crisis </li></ul><ul><li>Isolation and competitiveness with others </li></ul><ul><li>Missing opportunities for integrating and cooperating with other organizations </li></ul>
