Kurt Lewin's Change Management Theory, is a time-tested, easily applied field theory that is often considered the epitome of change models, suitable for both personal and organizational change. Kurt Lewin, (1890 – 1947) a Gestalt social psychologist, has been acknowledged as the “father of social change theories” since several contemporary models are at least loosely based on Lewin's work. He is also lauded as the originator of social psychology, action research, as well as organizational development.
This course is intended to provide the learner with the opportunity to:
- Identify driving and restraining forces that influence change.
- Recognize the behaviors and actions that help to lead the change process through the three stages of unfreezing, changing, and refreezing.
- Describe the characteristics and factors that ensure successful change through the application of the three stages and force field analysis.
