Friestad-Tate, Jill; McCoy, Craig
Journal on School Educational Technology, v8 n2 p33-43 Sep-Nov 2012
The purpose of the study was to listen to reactions of key stakeholders experiencing profound organizational change. A case study was used to gather data from participants' interview responses. Data analysis identified research-supported reactions; in addition, two unique themes were identified: constructive critique and ill-effects of good intentions. Listening to, understanding, and appreciating reactions and emotions during change provide valuable insights that help build organizational community and enhance the success of a change initiative.
