Analysis of Driving and Restraining Forces and Stakeholders
After a change goal has been identified, the action system can use a force field
analysis (Brager & Holloway, 1992) to identify driving forces, which aid the
change or make it more likely to occur, and restraining forces, which are
points of resistance or things getting in the way of change. The change goal,
or desired future state, is represented by a line down the middle of a piece of
paper. To its left, a parallel line represents the current state of the organization.
The change process involves moving from the current state to the ideal
future state. To the left of the second line (the current state) are listed all driving
forces (individuals, key groups, or conditions) which may assist in the
implementation of the change. On the other side are listed restraining forces
that will make the change more difficult to implement. An example is presented
in Figure 11.1: a force field analysis of a change goal to implement a
program evaluation system (Linn, 2000). Stakeholders may be listed here as
well: managers, bureaucratically oriented staff, or others likely to prefer the
status quo. Arrows from both sides touching the “current state” line represent
the constellation of forces.
