Research in social and work life factors that are accepting of change and the application of social exchange theory would expand change management theory beyond an examination of factors that cause resistance to change. A new research model is proposed that would identify factors that contribute to facilitating acceptance of dramatic or transformational change. The new model could be applied to organisations considering introducing transformational change to assess the suitability of existing employees to this type of organisational change.
