It therefore needs a fundamental change, a revolution. Revolutionary change allows a fresh beginning, sometimes a second chance and sadly sometimes the last chance for organization. The type of change needed also depends on the type of organization. Indeed, if the firm is made as a learning organization, it will apply changes when the environment changes. This corresponds to the evolutionary changes. [...]
