Abstract

The importance of studying change has grown as a result of the rapid social, environmental, and other changes. Yet little or no scholarly research has been conducted on the theories deployed to the study of change.

This paper is closes this gap in the literature. It develops a framework that researchers can use to ensure their choice of theory supports the topic and research questions of their study. This allows for greater validity, reliability and generalizability of the findings. The framework consists of two dimensions: Radical / Incremental change and Planned / Emergent change. The two dimensions form four change quadrants in which studies can be located.
