Change Management Curve Best Practices

A Change Curve is a tool used to understand the change management process and the stages that underlie it. Since most people experience the phase of change in similar ways, a Change Curve Model can help one understand how to provide support during the change management process.

Description of Change Curves

The Change Curve Model describes the phases that people typically experience when going through a change or transformation. There is no time frame for each stage and at times people can get stuck in a particular stage and not move on. By understanding what phase a person is in, and what tools are needed for that transition, it is possible to help people, teams and organizations move through the change curve. The five stages of change typically include:


  1. Denial: A person may be convinced that the change isn’t going to actually happen and will deny that it will. In this stage, communication is key by explaining to the person exactly what the change is, the effects is may have while providing them with reassurance.
  2. Anger: After realizing that the change is going to happen anger will set in. A person will look for someone to blame and often resort to anger and bitterness.
  3. Barganing: When anger subsides, an individual might start thinking of ways to postpone the change and may try to negotiate and come to a point of compromise.
  4. Depression: Also the learning phase, this is not a happy and comfortable stage. At this stage a person has understood that the change happened and there’s nothing to do about it.
  5. Acceptance: At this stage people finally begin accepting and embracing change.


The Change Curve is a trusted tool that can be used to understand where a person stands while going through change. Furthermore, it can give insight to managemers in understanding what their employees are going through as far as adapting to change so they can create methods of communication and guidance for them.
