After repeated cycles of PDSA tests, you will have a well-tested solution to an organizational issue that you would like to roll out to people who were not originally involved with your PDSA improvement activities. This section of the PDSA toolkit is concerned with spreading change.
Change is a process; individuals may have different reactions to your change idea. You will want to plan strategies that provide both emotional and behavioral supports to implementing change. The first section below will walk you through an organizational change model developed by a Harvard Business professor, John Kotter, to help you identify emotional and behavioral support strategies for those you are asking to implement your change idea. The second section will explain how to create a communication plan, a necessary component for spreading change.
