Abstract: This paper examines how various types of organizational change influence a firm’s growth in the short/medium term and long term within emerging economies. We classify organizational change on two dimensions: the scale of change and the duration of change. The proposed hypotheses were tested on a sample of 1446 companies from 28 emerging economies. The results of our analysis suggest that rapid realignment and rapid transformation is more likely to have stronger impact on the firm growth in the short/medium-term, but a weaker impact in the long-term for emerging market firms. Significant evidence on the impact of slow realignment and slow transformation on a firm growth could not be obtained.
