Business organizations need to perform changes in order to survive. Organizations need to adjust to the changing environment as well as to new technology, changes in role’s size and other factors. Such changes might stimulate some resistance and in some cases this resistance might lead to prevent or reduce the performance of changes. A change is being performed in order to cancel a certain situation and lead to a new and different one instead. A successful change, in any area, is composed of three main stages: the Thawing stage of behavioral patterns, values and stands. The pass stage toward new orders and relationships- a freezing stage of a new situation. Each stage is connected to the other (Lewin, Kurt, 1951).
