THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS OF CHANGE2Organizational change is necessary to grow and expand. By implementing organizationalcan cause uncertainty in the organization from the lowest level to the highest. There are manytheories of organizational change but one of the most popular agents of organizational change isLewin’s model of change. Lewin’s theory states that by splitting the change into three stages youcan break each section into bitesize chunks which will make the change easier to incorporate forthe organization and the employees affected by it (Mulholland, 2017). These stages are unfreeze,make changes, and refreeze. These stages incorporate organic changes within the organization.Organic evolution is any changes that occur over time which is one aspect of the Lewin’s modelof change. This paper will discuss Lewin’s model of change, what leadership skills are requiredto best implement change. Organic factors that facilitate change such as new technologies,globalization, new competitors that enter the market, and employee relations all effect theorganic evolution of change. These important factors are discussed and evaluated on howtheoretical foundations of change occurs.Organic Evolution of ChangeBurnes (2020) wrote external change is the cause. Internal change is the solution. Thoseprofound words are the basis of any organizational changes that occur. When the world isconstantly changing organizations cannot stay the same. They must evolve to be relevant.Change is necessary to stay relevant and successful. Organic change occurs when newtechnologies are introduced which can make the organization more efficient not only in businessbut in employee training. Organic evolution occurs based on two factors; internal and externalforces. These evolutions occur simultaneously based upon the willful actions of the internalenvironment, political systems, technical systems, regulatory mechanisms, management
