His work also initiated discussions on the change process which he referred to as the 3-step model. The model consisted of an organization unfreezing, changing, and refreezing. Later in his life, this model led to his research on analyzing change which he called a force field analysis. This consisted of analyzing the restraining or driving forces that affect transitions; assessing which are critical, and taking mitigating and maximizing steps on those critical factors.
The Lewin change model focuses on the three stages of how the organization evolves. The process starts with unfreezing which is altering the present state stable equilibrium. Secondly, the change introduces new responses to stimuli. Lastly, the change effort is stabilized and refrozen within the organization.
