This free Tool guides you through identifying the type of change your work entails. There are three very different types of change that occur in organizations: developmental, transitional and transformational. This Tool provides a thorough description of each and a worksheet to help you determine which type is the primary influence in your change effort.
This work is carried out in the CLR Task: Clarify Type of Change (Task I.B.3), which is part of the CLR Activity I.B Create Case for Change and Determine Initial Desired Outcomes. If you are working within the CLR process flow, you would already have clarified your plan to create your case for change.
As you become familiar with each type of change, you will discover that your case for change is strongly shaped by which type you are leading. Knowing the type of change will also shape your change strategy, since you will use different approaches depending on the type you are dealing with. This step is vital to a successful change effort, as one size does not fit all types of change.
