Taking the Teflon Off Change: An Approach for Education and Application
This chapter provides a review of scholarly perspectives on change management and a recommendation for managing transformational change that is based on this review. A review of the literature reveals that most research into change management can be placed into one of four areas. These four areas are (1) how to involve people in organizational change, (2) how to use theory- or model-based approaches in organizational change, (3) a focus on specific parts of an organization for successful change, and (4) case studies that explore experiences in change management. Examples from each of these four perspectives are reviewed. Following this review, the chapter presents a model-based approach that addresses leadership needs, organizational components, and the involvement of organizational members in the planning and deployment of an organizational change. This whole-system view is then discussed from two perspectives: first, as a pedagogical strategy recommended for leadership educators to use in their training on change management; second, how change leaders can apply the presented method in organizational settings.
