A theory of organizational readiness for change

In Change Management Risk Assessment I have outlined my own perspectives on change readiness assessment as a necessary early step in change management implementation.

I am aware that some people reading this will be doing so from a more academic perspective and so here is a "A theory of organizational readiness for change" (with extensive references) by Bryan J Weiner of Department of Health Policy and Management, Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA:

Here is an extract from the abstract re the background:

This paper describes the CALM methodology for robust organizational change management. CALM stands for Change Adaptation Learning Model, an advanced organizational change management methodology developed by Dr. David J. Koehn who is the Chief Learning Officer of CACI’s National Solution Group:

"We have implemented the CALM model as a decision support software application using DecisionPath’s ForeTell-DSS platform. ForeTell provides an innovative scenario-based “what-if” simulation capability. Consultants schooled in CALM use the software to project and analyze the likely consequences of candidate change strategies for client organizations within alternate scenarios of the future. In effect, they apply CALM to help clients conduct low-risk “test drives” of prospective or ongoing transformational strategies. Clients can thus practice how best to enable change, and apply the lessons learned from these low-cost “dry runs” to validate and refine plans."
