The Burke-Lewin Change Model

Introduction

The most important aspect of change is that it never occurs in isolation. A change in any of the various steps involved in a project effects the entire process as a whole and all the people associated with it. So why certain developments do brings you success while others fail to produce the desired results? The answer lies in how you assess the change process and how effective your change management plan is. As mentioned earlier change never effects a particular part in isolation.

A change in the system usually starts with a chain reaction which affects all the spheres of an organization. This change process is interconnected. You cannot add innovations to a part of the project without affecting the other interconnected pieces. Applying the change on a singular section in an organization will lead to the failure of the entire plan. A change management method that encompasses all the interconnected fields getting affected by the change is applicable in such cases. A failure in implementation of a change can prove to be catastrophic for the organization and can often lead to employees losing their job.
