The purpose of this paper is to provide a new frame of reference for considering change.
Following an introduction and definitions, people and organizations are considered as complex adaptive systems. The relationship between the knowledge worker and the environment is then explored by the mind/brain perspective prior to presenting an explication of the factors included in the personal action learning change model.
The study finds that the set of factors in the personal action learning change model represent a significant force for energizing action and initiating change.
This paper embraces new ways of thinking about learning, knowledge, action and change to suggest a personal action learning change model. A set of factors is described through which an individual can initiate and implement personal change from the inside out, that is, from their own volition. This is a new frame of reference for considering change.
