The organizational confrontation meeting is a total organizational intervention. At this meeting, all of the managers of an organization meet to confront the issue of whether the organization is effectively meeting its goals.

The first stage of the process is facilitated by a change agent (consultant). During this stage, top management invites free and open discussion of the organization's situation. Then the consultant divides the managers into groups of seven or eight, ensuring that the groups are as heterogeneous as possible and that no bosses and subordinates are members of the same group (so as to encourage free and frank discussion). The small groups report their findings to the total group, and the sorts of problems confronting the organization are categorized. Top management uses this statement of the issues to set organizational priorities and plan group action. Task forces are formed from the small groups to take responsibility for working on the problems, and each group reports back to top management on the progress that has been made. The result of this process is likely to be changes in the organization's structure and operating procedures.
