Emery and Trist (1994) suggest that organizational change is difficult to study, primarily because of the constantly changing environment in which organizations exist. The driving forces of change vary often as a result of external influences (Dromgoole and Mullins 2000). Moreover, organizations while increasing their complexity are also under pressure to incorporate the latest management techniques and field practices (Emery and Trist 1994). This process of changing to meet the requirements of the external environment in order to receive funding, to meet legislative requirements, and other related issues forces the organization into a state of constant flux and confusion.
Organizational futures will happen whether top administrators plan them or not, the strategic planner envisions where the organization needs to be in the future and works toward that goal. The correctional administrator can often be held hostage by the whims of the public as well those of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government. Moreover, the administrator is often held accountable for practices which fail and the flawed and often contradictory visions imposed on them by others.
