Abstract

The study investigated the relationship between change management and organizational effectiveness in the Nigerian maritime industry. The study used emergent change as a dimension for change management while organizational effectiveness was measured using corporate growth and employee commitment. The study adopted the cross sectional survey method, which is a form of the quasi experimental research design. A population element of 1651 was drawn from the 33 selected indigenous maritime companies in Nigeria. The Krejcie and Morgan (1970) table was used to arrive at a sample size of 327. The questionnaire was mainly used as instrument for data collection. The pearson moment correlation was used to test our hypotheses. The findings revealed that there exist a positive and significant relationship between emergent change and organizational effectiveness measured with employee commitment and corporate growth. We concluded that organizations with absorbtive capacities could turn changes into their favour if the system is built to withstand emergent environmental dynamism. We recommended that organizations should invest more in self building and self sustainability as a caution for these disruptive change which in some cases work to the advantage of the organization that exploits it.

Key words: : Change management, organizational effectiveness, emergent change, corporate growth and employee commitment.
