Force-field analysis - Improving Productivity 

Force-field analysis is based on the concept that any given level of productivity is the result of an equilibrium between driving (or impelling) forces and restraining (or impeding) forces that inhibit productivity. The target of the technique is therefore to increase the positive forces, although this sometimes results in increased resistance due to pressures placed on management.
