The purpose of this book is to gain an understanding of the process of change in Nigerian higher education. It explored the process of change through the interactions of people within an organisational setting as they produce patterned relations and action. The combination of structuration theory and neoinstitutionalism is used here, adopting the notion of scripts as a tool of analysis in studying organisational change. Scripts as a tool of analysis have been used in the developed world, which has a different culture from the developing world. Scripts provide a valuable opportunity for research into the complexity of change, which the traditional stage models of change cannot adequately grasp because of the magnitude and complexity of change. Through the use of scripts, several events were identified that brought about changes in scripted actions. I identified different factors responsible for continuous change in scripts which made the scripts unpredictable. In doing so, I built on and extended the work of other authors including Barley and Tolbert (1997) and Dent and Barry (2004), who have analysed change in organisations.
