    Abstract

    This study presents results from an original empirical study of 11 organizational change projects in different wards at two Danish hospitals. The purpose of the study was to study was to study changes in relation coordination as a consequence of organizational change.
    We measured relational coordination before and after the organizational change using the 7 question relational coordination questionnaire. A group of employees were interviewed after the change project to uncover the nature and extent of the changes.
    We find that organizations’ relational coordination score change very little – even for organizational change that introduces new work relations and new processes.
