Resitance to change LO24386

From: Michael Orth (
Date: 04/18/00

I am interested in identifying factors which make change efforts
successful and unsuccessful. The literature has several theories, but i
have found very few empirical studies.

There are a number of related questions:

1) how do we measure success of change efforts
2) what stage of change causes the most resistance
3) how do people react to change, what are specific behaviors related to
resisting and supporting change
4) what methodology would work to study resistance/support

I welcome any comments and references to useful sources.
