INCORPORATE ONE OF THESE THEORIES IN YOUR PLAN FOR CHANGE ASSIGNMENT
Heraclitus said “the only thing that is constant is change.” Change is a part of life, whether it is in your personal of professional life. As you become a nurse in an advanced practice role, you will be seen as a leader, and that include leading change. In order to understand how facilitate change, it is important to review some of the characteristics of change agents. Change agents don’t want to maintain the status quo, but see themselves a leader of change. Change agents are courageous, they are able to manage uncertainty, complex and or ambiguous situations. They learn from their mistakes and have a vision for the future. (Daft, 2015).
Leaders recognize that they need to develop a plan in order to implement change and that change goes through different stages. In order to develop a better understanding of change. There are several change theories or models which can be applied to change. Lasting change does not occur overnight.
Here are several theories or models for change. There are numerous resources online which can provide more in depth information about each one. When completing Assignment 3, incorporate one of these in your plan for change.
· Reddin’s Theory
· Lewin’s theory
· Roger’s Theory
· Lippitt’s theory
· McKinsey’ Sever Step Model
· Kotter’s Eight Step Change Model
