28 Factors That Causes Resistance to Change: Reference List

causes of resistance to change
In 2005 and 2006 I’ve made research of factors or sources that causes resistance to change. The research was made first theoretically studying of different literature sources, and then practically interviewing 80 managers on all managerial levels.

The results of the research was 28 different factors that cause resistance to change identified. That factors you can find in the post titled as Resistance to Organizational Change.

Because too many readers ask from me to give them a list of the literature resources that I’ve used as a basis to find that factors I want to share them here.
