Comparison Models Benefits Limitations ADKAR Sumarizes the process steps of change Effective management checklist Provides an understandable management checklist to manage the change Ignores the need for leadership to address the emotional dimension Misses out far too much to be fully effective in a step change initiative Fails to distinguish between the roles and functions of leadership as well as management Kotter 8 steps Clear and understandable process steps making it easy to execute the model Fits well with the other classical hierarchies The focus is not only on the success,but on the buy-in of employees as well Easy applicable for short-term goals No possibility for new steps Can lead to frustrations among employees if the individual needs are not considered Bridge’s Gradually accepting change transition Helps for understanding how employees feel during all the change process. model It is not replacing other models for change mgt Cannot be used as an independent change mgt model Gives a better view on the psychological effect of change Lewin this is a simple and easily understood model for change; it is timely, but you must consider that it is timely for any change to the model is done through steps; this is an efficient model that take place.

  • 8. Example Implementation of a new software tool • “This is a waste of time.” “Why change if it was working just fine before?” • “If it ain't broke, don't fix it.” “They never tell us what’s going on! If someone had taken the time to explain that the old software would no longer be supported by the vendor, and that new software was necessary to meet the needs of your customers, then your reaction (based on this awareness) would likely be : • “How soon will this happen? How will this impact me?” • “Will I receive new training?” One step further. You were aware that a change was required, but you had no desire to participate or support the change. • “What’s in it for me. I doubt they are really serious about this.” 8
  • 9. Conclusion The ADKAR model can be used to: • diagnose employee resistance to change • help employees transition through the change process • create a successful action plan for personal and professional advancement during change • develop a change management plan for your employees The ADKAR model has the ability to identify why changes are not working and help you take the necessary steps to make the change successful. You will be able to break down the change into parts, understand where the change is failing and address that impact point. 9
