Formatted Abstract/Summary
As the twenty first century draws closer, organizations are having to deal with ever increasing complex and volatile business environments. Multinational enterprises are exposed to a great number of these volatile environments that can be further differentiated by national cultures. In order for organizations to be successful they must be able to meet the pressures placed upon them from the external environment by undergoing internal change.

What do organizations or enterprises change to? To answer this question an extensive search of literature was carried out. What was found is that there is no one universal answer. Each enterprise is different, has individual character and possesses unique resources to carry out business. The ability to be able to stretch resources to meet demands will be of vital importance. What each enterprise needs to develop is an architecture which involves not only structure but a unique organizational capability. By doing this an organization will be able to obtain, and sustain a competitive advantage. This will not be an easy task as the form this will take will be different for each enterprise. Essentially organizations must learn to change, and relish change. As each organizational requirement will be unique, customised theories and practices will have to be developed. For this to be effective it must have the unequivocal support of the entire organization.
