This interactive test developed by de Caluwe & Vermaak helps you identify your convictions about change. The test results can be used to assess what type of change agent you are: what you are good at and what could be developed further. The test also gives you a first insight into different paradigms and approaches to change. It introduces a ‘color’ model: five fundamentally different and contingent approaches to change that can be recognized in both practice and literature. These five approaches function as diagnostic tools and provide a map of possible change strategies. They also assist reflection by change agents about their ability and credibility in each of the types of change. Most importantly, it supplies a common language between those involved in change to discuss how to deal with a specific change and their different viewpoints.
This leads to a dialogue with different stakeholders involved, and when it is embedded in the won school policy, vision and mission.Log in to view resource
