Dear Suzanne and Ana

Sorry to be slow sending you the following references on Change Grids:

Jones, Helen, "Biography in Organisation and Management Development" in a
journal called MANAGEMENT EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT Vol.23 Part 3 1992 pp


Jones, Helen, "Recipe 4: Resistance to Change Grid" in Cookery Corner,
EPCA Newsletter 1994, 4,1,26

The first article describes the research done with doctors and managers
comparing core values and using both a Resistance to Change Grid and a
Biography exercise to demonstrate similarity between the outcomes of both
exercises. The second is a simple description of how to do a Resistance
to Change grid

Hopt this is helpful.
