Previously discussed, it was mentioned how change can be implemented through many ways. Two approaches which deserve their own article are the contingency and processual approaches. These two approaches are often concerned with the director as it is the director who determines how processes will be implemented throughout an organisation although it becomes the role of the navigator to see through that processes are implemented rightfully.

Contingency approaches often set out how to achieve large-scale, transformational changes. During the course of a transformational process a few elements need to be managed, these being:
•    The need to manage organisational power
•    The need to motivate people to participate in the change
•    The need to manage the transition itself

These elements will often be managed through the following phases:
•    Rationalization
•    Revitalization
•    Regeneration

Contingency approaches have the power to categorise change into 4 ideal types:
•    The commanding
•    The engineering intervention
•    The teaching intervention
•    The socialising intervention

The processual approach is better at providing a detailed analysis and understanding of change retrospectively rather than prescriptively providing steps for the change manager to follow in any detailed manner. This means that overall the processual approach is the better take on a change initiative as it clears any misconceptions that may be at hand during a particular change.

Creating strategic change is in essence a long term conditioning, educating and influence process designed to establish a different pattern of relation between strategic context and content.

You may be asking yourself now, so which one is the dominator? Processual approaches are more dominant when it comes to change initiatives as the contingency approaches are framed around questions concerning the applicability of change rather than considering what the necessary steps would be to make the change happen.
