A Study on the Knowledge Mapping of Organizational Change Based on Keyword Co-Occurrence
Abstract: The word “organizational change” was first put forward in 1947 by scholar Kurt. Before the 1990s, most of the scholars praise highly the old institutionalism, believing organizational change as a summary of interpretation; after the late 1990s, along with the complicated international environment, the increasing progress of science and technology, research on organizational change is more and more specific and concrete, and scholars view change as normal in any organization and emphasize the universality of organizational change. Although the research on organizational change is more and more deep, including the background of organization, the process of organizational change, the role of leaders in a change, the relationship between change and the environment etc., the quantitative analysis is absent. So this article uses visualization software CiteSpace and sets the keywords as nodes, observing the research hotspot and the development trend in the field of organizational change, and we find the number of literatures published is at the top in 2008. There are four keywords that have higher co-occurrence frequency and centrality, which are “dynamic capability”, “human resource”, “competitive advantage” and “organizational structure”. Also, we will analyze literature related to the four keywords that have strong centricity thoroughly.
