Abstract

This paper seeks to construct a preliminary framework for considering change capability in public organisations. The framework is based on the literature on dynamic capabilities, case studies of transformational change in the public sector, and research that addresses change capability directly. The framework, which focuses on the people element of change, consists of four elements; creating collective response systems, mapping change, collective emotion management, and collective behaviour management. The framework is preliminary. The task is to devise propositions from the framework that may be tested.
