This model is also one of the powerful models to characterize the stages of personal variation involved in maximum organizational changes. It helps to understand how the employees will respond or behave to the change, provide cooperation for their own individual transitions and determine that they have the help and support they need. • Planning Change During the early periods, change management conveyed with it the intention of being the intangible activities embraced by the Human Resources department. However, over the last decade, change management has emerged as a structured regulation that business experts are seeing as a 'must have ' and not just a 'nice to have ' when major projects or initiatives originated.

In the today’s organisations business world, Change has become an obligatory means for an organisation to survive in the marketplace even for organisation that are small, medium or large.

3.0 Theories of Change Management Change management is not a separate and firm discipline with well-defined confines, rather the practice and theories of change management draw on a variety of social science studies and disciplines (Burnes, 2009). Thus, this literature will focus on a conceptual overview of change management. According to Bamford and Forrester (2003), the literature views change management conceptually in two approaches, namely; planned and emergent change. The proponents for the planned change refer to change management as a process of transiting from one existing state to another series of pre-planned phases, while proponents of the emergent change regard change as an open-ended, the continuous and volatile process of managing and realigning an organization to its volatile and changing environment. There exist a number of conceptual change models and for the purpose of this study three change leadership theories will be reviewed.

This chapter begins with the description of organizational change in various degrees. Also, an explanation of organizational change is provided, and what internal and external forces drive organizational change is discussed. Organizational change is a process where an organization reviews and modifies its structure, strategies, technologies or organizational culture according to the change within the organization or to external circumstances (Kirpatrick, 2001). For instance, back in 1981, British Airways appointed Lord King as the new chairperson, who noticed that the company was working inefficiently and valuable resources were being wasted.
