The Burke-Litwin organizational change framework is a causal change model that seeks to show where change arises and how it flows between different parts of organizations. The model shows links between 12 strategic, operational and individual factors. The Burke-Litwin model is an organizational change model which says that organizations have 12 key factors that need to be considered when assessing change. These factors are grouped into different levels of factors.
At the most macro level there are external factors. At the next level down are strategic factors, followed by operating factors and individual factors, before we reach the most micro factor grouping which is output.
Within this model the interconnected nature of the factors is shown to be somewhat determined by the level of the factors. For example, the strategic factors are most impacted by the external factors and the operating factors, the factor levels that they are sandwiched between. We like the Burke-Litwin framework as a way to think about organizations and the factors that affect them and the changes within them. We like the semi-systemic approach that the model takes and the relational nature of it.
We are, however, of the view that change really can originate from anywhere within an organization, and we also believe that there are more interconnections than are shown in this model. These, though, are minor points. In summary, we like the model and think it shows some useful things, but also think organizations are more complex than implied through this model. Where possible we always recommend that people read up on the original sources of information and ideas.

Causal Model of Organizational Performance and Change (Burke and Litwin)
Completely free. Log in. Click for more info Organizational change is a kind of chaos. Like the 7-S Framework by Pascale and Athos, the Burke-Litwin Model integrates a range of factors that provide some guidance to understand how organizations work amidst this chaos.
The Burke Litwin change model strives to usher in change in the performance of a team or an organization by establishing links between performance and the internal and external factors which affect performance. This change model is based on assessing the organizational as well as environmental factors which can be tweaked so as to ensure a successful change. The Burke Litwin change model begins with outlining a framework, comprising the affecting factors which can be manipulated to guarantee a smoother transition from one phase of the change process to another. The most critical aspect here is establishing the links between the twelve dimensions of this change framework. Here is a brief description of each of the 12 dimensions identified by the Burke Litwin change model.
Using the Burke Litwin Change Model to Manage Organizational Change
A common reason for a change initiative failing is all areas of the organisation affected by the change are not accounted for. Therefore, using this model can reveal what areas of the business are affected and how they are interrelated. The model also demonstrates the hierarchy of factors within an organisation and hence the flow of influence from one factor to the next. There are four groups of elements within an organisation; the external environment, transformational factors, transactional factors and performance. Each group then contains various elements of the organisation. The diagram demonstrates which elements belong in which group, how they interact with each other and the overall hierarchy of an organisation.
