The organizational life cycle is the life cycle of an organization from its creation to its termination.[1]

There are five levels/stages to any organization:[citation needed]

  1. Birth
  2. Growth
  3. Maturity
  4. Decline
  5. Death

According to Richard L. Daft [2] there are four stages in an Organizational Life Cycle.

The four stages are:

  1. Entrepreneurial stage -> Crisis: Need for leadership
  2. Collectivity stage -> Crisis: Need for delegation
  3. Formalization stage -> Crisis: Too much red tape
  4. Elaboration stage -> Crisis: Need for revitalization

(Richard L. Daft, Understanding the Theory and Design of Organizations, first edition 2007, ISBN 0-324-42271-7)
