Some Useful Frameworks for Organisational Transitions

In the table below are 110+ change frameworks that can be utilised in change as complete frameworks themselves or being included as part of a new framework, etc.

The main aim of using a framework is to help with the thinking and implemenation process for the change.

The frameworks are categorised under 1 of 4 headings:

i) Basic (these frameworks give a generalised view of change and are suitable for people who have had no, or little, experience in organisational change; they are a good way of introducing what change is all about)
ii) Rational or Hard (these frameworks focus on the analytical, rational, logical, technical, tangible, etc side of change; they lack the human focus)
iii) Cultural or Soft (these frameworks focus on the intangibles, human-side, people-side, emotional, cultural, social, etc side of change; they lack the rational focus)
iv) Combination (these frameworks contain elements of both ii & iii, ie include elements of rational/hard and cultural/soft)

"...Frameworks can be simple, but implementation is not..."
