Phase 6 – Maintain change Evaluation o Phase 7 – Terminate the helping relationship While the change theories are similar in their approach to implementing change, there are slight differences between them. Lewin’s theory is only suitable for small changes, it ignores organizational partners and politics, it is a top down and management driven approach, and assumes that the organiztions operattions are in a stable state (Mitchell, 2012). Lippitt’s theory works is more detailed and is more useful for managers because it incorporates a more detailed plan based on the nursing process (Mitchell, 2012).
While discussing this with my mentor as well as a nurse manager, they both state that they have mostly used Lippitt’s theory to make changes. My mentor states that they use this style for the nurse residency program, that they find it easier for the new grads to create their nurse residency projects using his theory. Mitchell, G. (2012).
