The Impact of Conflicts in the Organizational Development
Keywords:conflict; organization; impact; development
Conflict, regardless of its forms, is inherent in social life, being obviously present at the level of
different types of organizations. This paper aims to highlight the impact and positive, constructive effects of
conflicts in organizational development. Conflicts are inevitable and often lead to the efficiency of the
organization's activity, to its development. Sometimes conflicts need to be caused in order to generate
something new, evolution and invigorate an organization. Conflict is inherent in human interaction, appearing
as a result of different systems of social values, differences in principles, culture, interests. Considering these
aspects, it tends to manifest itself with a greater emphasis within an organization, considering the multitude of
groups and subgroups that make it up. A mirror analysis between the particularities of the group, as a production
entity and the constituent elements of the conflict phase, from its outburst to its fadeaway, will be a sufficiently
calibrated working tool to be used in the analysis matrix and strategic reconstruction of an organization.
