It provides a framework for looking at the factors (forces) that influence a situation, originally social situations.
It looks at forces that are either driving movement toward a goal (helping forces) or blocking movement toward a goal (hindering forces).
The principle, developed by Kurt Lewin.

  3. 3. Force Field Analysis • It provides a framework for looking at the factors (forces) that influence a situation, originally social situations. • It looks at forces that are either driving movement toward a goal (helping forces) or blocking movement toward a goal (hindering forces). • The principle, developed by Kurt Lewin.
  4. 4. Force Field Analysis • Driving forces are forces that push in a direction that causes change to occur. • Driving forces facilitate change because they push the person in the desired direction. • They cause a shift in the equilibrium towards change.
  5. 5. Force Field Analysis • Restraining forces are forces that counter driving forces. • Restraining forces hinder change because they push the person in the opposition direction • Restraining forces cause a shift in the equilibrium which opposes change.
  6. 6. Force Field Analysis • Equilibrium is a state of being where driving forces equal restraining forces and no change occurs • Equilibrium can be raised or lowered by changes that occur between the driving and restraining forces.
