Shock of the New - 2014 Resistance Timeline

Shock of the New - 2014 Resistance Timeline | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This humorous timeline gives perspective and meaning to the shock of change, with a nod to Alvin Toffler, author of the classic Future Shock.   


The quote shared is also meaningful, in the context of looking at your own adapt-to-change abilities and those of your peers:
"Every man is a creature of the age in which he lives, and few are able to raise themselves above the ideas of the time." - Voltaire

Oversimplifying Change Management : A Historical View and Current Perspective

Oversimplifying Change Management :  A Historical View and Current Perspective | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
Leaders, change practitioners and researchers often view organizational change through a dual lens: people either support or resist the change. This limited view of change management assures failure during the initial planning process.
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Is change really either / or - binary at the individual level?  Or does a full historical and practice perspective on change better fit into this perspective where change management is not a dichotomy?  ~  Deb

Another view of Polarity Management is here: http://www.people-results.com/polarities-problem-solving-its-and-or-thinking/#.UP1rrqVfWO9 >> Polarity Partnerships spoke at the National OD Network conference and defined Polarities as “interdependent pairs that support a common purpose and one another. They are energy systems in which we live and work.”

What is change management? (Mount Rushmore version) : Change Management Success

What is change management? (Mount Rushmore version) : Change Management Success | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
The Mount Rushmore of Change Management
- the big four:  John Kotter, Daryl Conner, Linda Ackerman Anderson & Jeff Hiatt

From Daryl Conner, a two-part definition including:

  • Its focus in not on "what" is driving change (technology, reorganization plans, mergers/acquisitions, globalization, etc.),
  •  but on "how" to orchestrate the human infrastructure that surrounds key projects to that people are better prepared to absorb the implications affecting them. 
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This is a clever way to make a point about the origins of Change Management, definitions and to set the context for where it has ended up today.  ~  Deb

Convergence: Two paths join in the History of Change Management?

Convergence:  Two paths join in the History of Change Management? | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
To understand change management as we know it today, you need to consider two converging and predominant fields of thought: an engineer's approach to improving business performance and a psychologist's approach to managing the human-side of change.
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Accessible models and well-known authors are cited in this overview of the convergence of the engineering  side of change (also project management) and the psychology of change (human factors.)  


A different historical perspective contrasts this view in the next post.


"For the past decade, organizational change researchers have argued that individual responses are more complicated than a binary response (Piderit, 2000; Rafferty, Jimmieson, & Armenakis, 2012)."



 Which one fits your conceptualization of change today? ~  D
