Top Change Management Approaches

Change Management Approaches is the term that used to refer to the way are organization will transform.  It involves the application of formal methods and a planned framework to nudge business from its current state to a future state. There are many methods to do this so our team voted on the Top 5 change management approaches:

Our Top 5:

5. The McKinsey 7-S Model. This consistent approach has stuck around for years. It features 7 steps to drive change in a checklist format. Strategy, structure, systems, shared values, style, and staff.

4.  The Kotter Approach. The most popular and applied change model.  Divided into 8 phases where each one of them focuses on a key principle that is associated with the response of people to change.

3. The Lewin Freeze Model. Developed in the 1950’s but still used today. The model explains change in the form of  the changing states of a block of ice. The three main stages unfreeze, change and refreeze.

2. The ADKAR Approach. A goal-oriented model which makes it possible for the various change management teams to focus on those steps directly related to the goals it wants to reach to. The model can be used by managers of change to find out the numerous gaps in the process.

1. Nudge Approach. Nudge Theory finds use in behavioral science, economics, and political theory but can be applied to change management in organizations as well. Nudging someone and inspiring them to change is the basic essence of this theory. Nudge theory is not only helpful in exploring and understanding existing influences but also explaining them to either eliminate them or change them to an extent where positives may begin to be derived.
