Change in a University
Leah, Trinidad
Is there an ideal model when assessing organizational change in a tertiary institution? I am considering ADKAR and comparing it with other models...any thoughts on this?

Leah, if you are evaluating the extent to which change has taken root in the University, I suppose you are really having the right tool - ADKAR model. Usually I find it useful especially in measuring the buy-in from stakeholders. If however, you are assessing the readiness of the University to embrace change, you may be better-off using a different model I suppose. Usually this is mostly predetermined by the nature of issues to be addressed. I find it that there is no one-fit-all model. My best approach has always been in developing a tailor-made diagnostic tool - especially in determining the leadership capability to drive and sustain the changes envisaged in the organisation. I have my own too developed for this purpose.

I suggest you first decide what about organizational change you need to assess. Is it whether it is needed or not? Or what kind? Or about what levers you can use? Or, after answering these, how best to to go about it, who to involve, and with what resources. Each of these would require a dove-tailed approach, where you match the task at hand with the capacity and capability of the change agent.
