Enterprise change can be seen to have different degrees, each of which is progressively wider in scope and different in nature, varies in type of intervention, and absorbs an increasing amount of environmental complexity. In this chapter, three degrees of enterprise change are identified. The first degree of change is about restructuring in an operational scope with focus on reliability, cost containment, and efficiency. The second degree is broader in scope, more dynamic in nature, and focused on value creation through reengineering. The third degree of change is complex, strategic, and aimed at fundamental rethinking and value innovation. It is argued that each successive degree of change addresses a progressively more complex environmental context and calls for increasingly developed information technology capability.
