    Organisational change is a continually 'hot topic' within both the organisational and research communities with very good reason, as the rate of the pace of change increases year-on-year (currently estimated to be approximately 9% change increase year-on-year). And this is just in terms of new knowledge, scientific discoveries and technological advancements. Added to this, there is an almost measurable amount of social, political and market change ongoing at any particular time. At the time of writing the Covid_19 pandemic is creating unprecedented organisational and social change around the world.
    But how much evidence is there for many of the ideas, methods, techniques, and tools that organisations, consultants and organisational change professionals use? Find out what the research says...

    The Principled Leadership Scale - Interview with Karen Hendriks

    The Principled Leadership Scale - Interview with Karen Hendriks

    Issues like the Enron scandal (where the Chief Executive was found guilty of 18 counts of fraud, conspiracy and insider trading) and the VW emissions scandal (where technology was used to cheat emissions testing protocol and a range of other scandals) show that unethical and unprincipled decision-making and leadership is not an uncommon problem and is most likely occurring right now behind closed boardroom doors in some organisation or other.

    The problem organisations face with using Big Data for decision making - interview with Dr. Maryam Ghasemaghaei

    More and more organisations are turning to big data to inform their decision-making, however they are finding that all is not well when they try to use big data.

    How people with higher levels of psychological entitlement stop others getting promoted

    How people with higher levels of psychological entitlement stop others getting promoted

    Social norms are the rules that guide and constrain behaviours within any culture or society and both stem from and control what is appropriate behaviour within that environment. Social norms are the arbiters of order, organisation and structure within any society. However, despite the fact that they regulate social interactions and maintain order within a society, norm violations are frequent.
     
    A number of previous studies have found that in many societies, regular and blatant norm violators tend to be controlled, often in subtle ways, and they are frequently prevented from being able to gain positions of influence.
     These are normal parts of everyday life, but the questions are: 
    Why do some people violate social norms?
    How are norm violators controlled and their influence restricted?
    Why and who are the arbiters of social norm following?
