Abstract

Several authors have reflected on the underdeveloped state of organizational change theory, research, and practice. This field needs an integrative framework that can synthesize major approaches to change. The Transtheoretical Model has the potential to do for organizational change what it has done for individual behavior change. Conceptually the stages-of-change dimension can be used to integrate principles and processes of change from divergent models of change. Practically, the stages-of-change dimension can be applied by leaders to reduce resistance, increase participation, reduce dropout, and increase change progress among employees.
