Evolutionary, Incremental Change Management Methods
C MARIE HIGGINS, Member
In the Burke Litwin Model
of organizational performance and change, a frame work is provided to process an organization's need for change, what variables will have the greatest impact, and whether to implement the change in the transactional factors or the transformational factors. The model's change process dynamics is based on a quasi-equalibrium process of incremental change.
This Burke-Litwin model of organizational performance and change has 12 variables that allow one to analyze the culture and climate of an organization on a systemic, group and individual level. It not only, captures the transformational need, but also the transactional need; such as, what you are referring. A deep dive appreciative inquiry
in combination assists in garnering data integral to the social dynamics of the climate.
