OD Toolkit Series - Nine Principles of Kurt Lewin’s Planned Change
If you think you know Kurt Lewin, you will be surprised by what Gil Crosby learned while writing his new book!
Join OD Practitioner and author Gilmore Crosby for an exploration of Kurt Lewin’s methods and theories of planned changed. Gilmore has been carefully reviewing Lewin’s material and compiling it for his upcoming book, Planned Change: Why Kurt Lewin's Social Science is What the World Needs Now for Leadership, Business Performance, Change Management & Social Change. Crosby makes the case that Lewin’s methods and theories are still the best blueprint for planning, implementing, and sustaining change, at the micro (individual) and macro (global) level.
The Nine Principles:
- Scientific Methods
- Training – Action - Research
- Group Dynamics
- Democratic Principles and Leadership
- Group Decision
- Change as Three Steps
- Field Theory
- Social Construction of Reality
- Everlasting Change for the Betterment of Humanity
At 60, Crosby’s deep dive into Lewin has sharpened and energized his OD. He’s eager to spread the word.
