- Organizational life cycle
There are five level/stages in any organization.
According to Richard L. Daft  there are four stages in an Organizational Life Cycle.
The four stages are:
- Entrepreneurial stage -> Crisis: Need for leadership
- Collectivity stage -> Crisis: Need for delegation
- Formalization stage -> Crisis: Too much red tape
- Elaboration stage -> Crisis: Need for revitalization
