Research shows a failure rate of 70% for all initiated change. This professionally-oriented case study addresses this issue and aims to empirically test the strength of the Learning Organisation (LO) model as a change management approach. Evidence from this study suggests that Senge’s LO model is useful in dealing with changes in an ambiguous environment. However, leaders need to review each situation, as every change strategy should be specific to the culture, context and situation. This paper contributes to the existing knowledge on change management by providing a better understanding of the impact of two different approaches to change. Further studies could assess the impact of implementing different change approaches on organisational performance. In addition, further studies may include literature in other languages, such as Chinese and Japanese, to highlight the similarities and differences between cultures.
