Planned Change


Planned change

Murphy (1999) suggests that “change is inevitable, but growth is optional.”


Planned change

A fundamental difference in management and leadership is that managers continue the status quo and leaders embrace change.


Types of change

Types of Change

  • Planned change

Planned change

Regardless of the type of change, all major change brings feelings of achievement, loss, pride, and stress.


Planned change

Planned change,in contrast to accidental change or change by drift, is change that results from a well-thought-out and deliberate effort to make something happen.


3 good reasons for change

3 Good Reasons for Change

  • Change to solve some problem.

  • Change to make work more procedures more efficient.

  • Change to reduce unnecessary workload.


Lewin 1951 identified several rules that should be followed in implementing change

Lewin (1951) identified several rules that should be followed in implementing change:

  • Change should only be implemented for good reason.

  • Change should always be gradual.

  • All change should be planned, and not sporadic or sudden.

  • All individuals who may be affected by the change should be involved in planning for the change.

Resistance the natural and expected response to change

Resistance: The natural and expected response to change

Degree of resistance for each individual depends on four things:

  • Their flexibility to change

  • Their evaluation of the immediate situation

  • The anticipated consequences of the change

  • Their perceptions of what they have to lose and gain

    —Silber (1993)

Planned change

Bushy and Kamphuis (1993), building on that work of Rodgers (1983), identified six behavioral patterns commonly seen in response to change: innovators, early adapters, early majority, late majority, laggards, and rejectors.


Planned change

Pesut (2000) classifies individuals as either crusaders or tradition bearers in response to their propensity to seek change.


Planned change

Perhaps the greatest factor contributing to the resistance encountered with change is a lack of trust between the employee and the manager or the employee and the organization.


Planned change

Whenever possible, all those who may be affected by a change should be involved in planning for that change.


Planned change

When information and decision making are shared, subordinates feel that they have played a valuable role in the change.


Planned change

Porter-O’Grady (2003) suggests that the manager’s behavior is the single most important factor in how people in the organization accept change.
