Lippitt, Gordon L. (1973). Visualizing change: Model building and the change process . San Diego , CA: University Associates.

Type of Resource: Book
(ISBN: 0-88390-125-0)

Lippitt describes organizational change as a process which brings with it an entirely new set of concerns. Our lack of coping with problems, he says, is partially caused by attitudes toward the process of change. He suggests use of models to plan, initiate, implement and evaluate change at individual, group and organizational levels. Motivation is a key factor and there is multiple causation, according to the author. Perception, he adds is enhanced by a good model and leaders of change need to be consistently aware of perception. Problem solving involves cognition and cognition involves perception, the author submits. Lippitt presents approximately 100 models for change within the text, including diagrams of each.
