Review existing procedures and adapt to new operations Plan for workplace change 


Internal drivers of change

Sometimes, factors inside the organisation bring about change. These are changes that happen because someone – management, staff or unions, for example – see the need for change to occur.

[See longdesc for full description.]

Internal drivers can relate to:

  • changes in the organisation's strategy
  • changes in the staff
  • the introduction of new equipment
  • employee attitudes.

Stakeholders (sometimes called key players) are people who initiate or are affected by a change; for example, management, employees, union delegates and members of the board of management. They are also people who have an interest (often financial) in an organisation.

Change agents are people who support and manage a change, such as senior management, middle management, employees, clients, customers and consultants.
