Facilitating Organizational Change
MAY 18th 2011 Program
Leading, managing, and facilitating change within organizations requires the understanding of systems. How systems affect processes and where a systematic solution may be useful are central to our facilitation of organizational change.
There are a number of theories to explore when approaching organizational change such as: Systems Thinking & Open Systems Theory, Chaos and Complexity Theory, Appreciative Inquiry Theory, and Action Research Theory. Communication Theory is another; and effective communication is tied directly to successful organizational change.
What motivates the employees will vary, but your understanding of motivating factors is perhaps the most critical element to consider when implementing organizational change to minimize resistance, turnover, and failure to institutionalize the change.
