Force field analysis

At the last two DLnet masterclasses, we've looked at force field analysis in association with change management. This is a method which identifies the restraining (hindering) forces and the driving (favouring) forces for change. We've discussed how to "turn down" the restraining forces and "turn up" the driving forces, in relation to promoting evidence-based decision making.

A brief description of force field analysis is given in a recent SDO publication by Valerie Iles and Kim Sutherland, Managing Change in the NHS: Organisational Change. A Review for Health Care Managers, Professionals and Researchers, National Co-ordinating Centre for NHS Service Delivery and Organisation R&D, 2001, which is available online.

Summaries from our group discussions on this will be posted on the DLnet pages after the series of masterclasses ends in September.
