Presentation Transcript
  • How the change is implemented is critical for the successful adoption of new information resources
  • Review several models and concepts for managing change
  • Apply these methodologies to your institutional setting regarding the adoption of HINARI
broad concept of change
Broad Concept ofChange

“Change is a permanent part of life. No matter who we are, where we live, how old or young, we all make changes in our lives. Most of us struggle with change…

The ways we change inside, the ways we grow and learn, and become transformed are because of the changes in our lives.”

Orlando A, Anaam C. The Change Agent

change agent
Change agent

an individual who influences clients’ decisions in a direction deemed desirable by a change agency; roles include

  • develop the need for change
  • diagnosis the problem
  • establish information exchange channels
  • create an intent to change in the clients
  • translate an intent into action
  • stabilize adoption and prevent discontinuance
conditions for successful change
Conditions for successful change
  • dissatisfaction with the status quo
  • people have the necessary knowledge and skills
  • tools needed to are available
  • implementers have time to learn, adapt, integrate and reflect on change
  • rewards or incentives exist for participants
  • participation in process is expected and encouraged
  • have support for innovation by key players and stakeholders
resistance to change
Resistance to change
  • lack of trust
  • perception that change is not necessary
  • perception that change is not possible
  • relatively high cost
  • fear of personal failure
  • loss of status or power
  • threats to values and ideas
  • social, cultural or organizational disagreements
  • resentment of interference
exercise 1
Exercise 1
  • Think of one successful change in your work environment. List the successful change variables that were in place. What was the critical factor(s) for the success of the change?
  • Think of some unsuccessful change from your environment. List the resistance to change variables that were present. What was the critical factor(s) that thwarted the change?
exercise 18
Exercise 1
  • Regarding the use and implementation of HINARI, list some of potential resistance to change factors in your institutional setting.
three phases
Three Phases
  • Unfreezing phase - old ways are no longer appropriate and that change is needed
  • Changing phase - select an appropriate and promising approach
  • Refreezing phase – the new approach is implemented and it becomes established
rogers adopter categories
Rogers: Adopter Categories
  • innovators - the first 2.5% to adopt the innovation
  • early adopters - the next 13.5% to adopt the new idea
  • early majority - next 34% of the adopters
  • late majority - the next 34% to embrace the change
  • laggards - the last 16% to adopt the innovation
adopter categories definitions
Adopter Categories Definitions
  • Innovators
    • have a great interest in new ideas and a desire to be daring and risky
    • can cope with uncertainty regarding change
    • may not be respected by other members of the organization
  • Early Adopters
    • are the critical group for change/opinion leaders
    • contain role models for others that respect them for judicious ‘innovation decisions’
    • are not too far ahead of the organization as compared to innovators
    • decrease uncertainty when they adopt new ideas
adopter categories definitions14
Adopter CategoriesDefinitions
  • Early Majority
    • adopts new ideas before the average members of the organization
    • not opinion leaders/make decisions slowly and carefully
    • follow with deliberate willingness in adopting change but rarely lead
  • Late Majority
    • adopts innovations after the majority of the organization
    • generally are skeptical and cautious
    • respond to pressure from their peers and new organizational norms
adopter categories definitions15
Adopter Categories Definitions
  • Laggards
    • are isolated and interact with others with traditional values
    • usually make decisions on what has been done in the past
    • possess almost no opinion leaders
    • often are suspicious of change and change agents
rogers s shaped curve
Rogers: S-shaped Curve

a period of slow adoption before experiencing a sudden period of rapid adoption and then a gradual leveling off

exercise 2
Exercise 2
  • For the successful utilization of HINARI in your institution, identify individuals that would be:
      • Innovators
      • Early adopters
      • Early majority
      • Late majority
      • Laggards
      • Opinion leaders in the early adopters’ group
exercise 218
Exercise 2
  • List two or three strategies you would use to work with the opinion leaders.
  • How would you deal with the laggards (and you can be honest)?
useful strategies
Useful Strategies
  • establish a sense of urgency
  • create a guiding coalition
  • develop a compelling vision and strategy
  • communicate the change vision widely
  • empower stakeholders for broad-based action on the vision
  • generate short-term wins
  • consolidate gains and produce more change
  • anchor new approaches in organizational culture
exercise 3
Exercise 3
  • For your institution’s adoption of HINARI, how would you utilize the strategies and suggestions listed above?
  • What would be most useful and why?
  • Identify the key (most difficult) issues to overcome for the successful adoption/utilization of HINARI.
  • What strategies do you propose to surmount these hurdles?
  • Implement the strategy that you have developed (to be done after the completion of the course)!
strategy for stakeholders
Strategy for Stakeholders
  • Identify the stakeholders whose commitment is required.
  • For each type of stakeholder, describe the needed change, perceived benefits and expected resistance.
  • Develop action plans including ones for the stakeholder groups that are not sufficiently committed.
  • One critical group often ignored is higher-level administration; they must be included one of the key groups.
exercise 4
Exercise 4
  • For the optimal use of HINARI, who are the key ‘stakeholder groups’?
  • How would each group benefit from HINARI?
  • Which would be the most difficult group to work with and what strategy would you use?
  • How would you involve the administration?
cautionary note
Cautionary note

Consequences of innovation can include

undesirable consequences:

  • direct or immediate results
  • indirect or consequences that are a result of the innovation
  • anticipated or recognized/intended changes
  • unanticipated consequences that are neither intended or recognized
goal of innovation or change
Goal of innovation or change
  • Dynamic equilibrium
    • Change occurs at a rate that the institution can cope with it
    • System can adapt to the change
    • The organization is not overloaded with too rapid change that leads to an inability to adjust or disequilibrium
    • Can can this be achieved with HINARI?
