Managing and leading change: models and practices

ByCELIA POPOVIC, KATHRYN M. PLANK

We explore five models – grass roots, Faculty-led, strategic, community building and research-based – that may help developers to manage and lead change, rather than merely responding to it. In each case, we analyse when the model works best, and why, and include a case study illustrating the approach. Actual practice may not fit neatly into a single model, or into the three-stage process – creating a climate for change, engaging and enabling the organisation and implementing and sustaining the change – that we describe and use. In practice, of course, we often use combinations of models. But models help us to conceptualise our work and make it more intentional.
