Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
This preliminary research challenges the preconceived notion that resistance is an impediment to change by producing evidence identifying inconsistencies with theory and highlighting the lack of consideration about its constructive role within organisations. As a result there is a need to accurately measure the nature of resistance within the organization and a questionnaire was developed to identify the type of resistance that existed within a particular environment. The paper will include the results of the testing instrument for the measurement of resistance at a particular manufacturing company in Australia.
