This paper advances our understanding of the variables contributing towards the consistent performance of employees in the SMEs of U.A.E. No such study has been conducted in the Arab world yet. This study applies concepts examined in developed countries (with regards to the large organizations) to the SMEs in a developing country. Data was collected from 107 SME managers/owners working in U.A.E. Results indicated that the variables studied in developed countries are valid in U.A.E as well; a country with predominantly Arab culture. Findings suggest that all the variables discussed in this research are positively correlated with the consistent performance of the SMEs’ employees in U.A.E.
In this paper, the applied aspect of complexity theory envisions organisations as dynamic and adaptive systems. Through this application, the study examines the process of organisational transformation and outlines a research program. The proposed research has been designed to provide new tools and practical insights to make success more likely for organisations in the transformational process. The research outcomes are intended to inform organisational strategists, management consultants, change managers, and scholars in the field of management sciences, and more generally, improve understanding of organisational transformation process in large and complex organisations.
