Faced with the existential threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, organisations have been forced, almost universally, into programmes of rapid and radical transformation. In many cases, this has caused a significant rethink in how work should be carried out; in virtually all cases, there will be further major changes ahead for those organisations that survive. In this essay, we consider the implications of the pandemic for the study of organisational change and argue for a shift in the role of interests and values from the periphery to a more central position in our theoretical and practical change management models.
