1.   Nature of the workforce: Almost every organization is having to adjust to a multicultural environment. Demographic change immigration and outsourcing also have transformed the nature of the workforce.

2.   Technology: Technology is changing jobs and organizations. Just about the time an organization adapts to one technological change, other technological challenges and opportunities come to the forefront.
3.   Economic shocks: Economic shocks have continued to impose changes on organizations. In recent years, new dot-com business have been created, turned thousands of investors into overnight millionaires, and then crashed and others rise in their wake. Record low interest rates and 2000-2002 stock market collapse are economic shocks. 
4.   Competition: Competition is changing. The global economy means that competitors are as likely to come from across the ocean as from across town. Successful Organizations will change in response to the competition. Competition also affects the organizational change.
