OD practitioners often use models to assist in identifying organizational problems. There are a diversity of models and their success is dependent on the problem at hand and the execution of the model and its suggested resolution. One model is called the ‘six-box- model', which focuses on “the organization’s strategy, structures, rewards, internal relationships, helpful mechanisms, and leadership.” A second model is the sharp-image diagnostic model. This model only includes four steps and it focuses on a broad ‘scan’ of the organization and then honing in on specific areas for more examination. (Justo ND). The six-box-model focuses on internal and external factors, where as the sharp-image model focuses only on internal factors. A third model is the force field model. The force-field analysis model was created by Kurt Lewin, and is based on the idea that internal factors, or forces, are what are creating the problems, which need to be resolved. Lewin believed that “An organization can change only if the “driving forces” for change can overcome the “restraining forces” against change (Herbert 2009). In order to utilize this last model, data on employee opinions, productivity, and efficiency would be useful.
