Brief History of Change: ADKAR
AUGUST 31, 2011
The ADKAR model provides another perspective of the change process. Rather than describe what is happening, or prescribe what actions must be taken, the ADKAR model predicts that organization change only happens individuals change. Developed by Jeff Hiatt, the ADKAR model focus on the five outcomes individuals must experience before organizations can change. There is nothing new in the ADKAR model, except how its unique perspective allows for unique application.
