The Bridges Transition Model is a model that helps a business or person with organisational change. The strength of this model is that it focuses on the transition to change. It’s this transition that’s often uncomfortable for people, leading to resistance. We know why people are resistant to change and with that knowledge, and this model, we can remove that resistance. Change is often implemented to make things more efficient, safe, or easy. Although these reasons are meant to benefit the organisation and performance, employees often turn out to be the biggest obstacle. According to the Bridges Transition Model, they don’t have to be. In this model of change, Bridges helps to clarify the personal aspect of change management, showing employees as supporters rather than obstacles. In short, Bridges’ Transition Model identifies three stages people go through as they gradually enter and accept the new organisational landscape. The model mainly focuses on psychological change during the transitions between each stage. The model was developed and published by William Bridges (1933 – 2013). He was an American author, organisational consultant, and public speaker.[1]
