Abstract

It is almost a cliche to say that the only constant thing in the world is change; but like most cliches it is predominantly true. Certainly within the world of education change is the norm. Fullan (1996, p. 420) points out that one of the main problems in education at the present time is overload due to “the continuous stream of planned and unplanned changes that affects schools.” Elsewhere Fullan and Stiegelbauer (1991) point out that it is not possible to pursue all the available change efforts and suggests that it would be more productive to “work at fewer innovations, but do them better” (p. 104). Thus we need to be able to decide which of the range of competing changes are worth pursuing.
