Abstract : The document reports on the test of a model of planned social change. Based on the Lewinian model, the research examines the relationship of some phenomenological antecedents of change and intervention strategies to subsequent change in an organization. Four programs, using different intensities of outside resource assistance, are studied for their success in producing organizational development, controlling for prior levels of job related tension, valence, and potency.
