CF Transformation is the label given to a series of initiatives geared to re-organizing and refocusing the Canadian Forces to better prepare for a radically changed global security environment. Organizational culture change will occur as a function of the implementation of CF Transformation. To ensure that the culture change is firmly aligned with the organizational direction envisioned by the Chief of Defence Staff, this report puts forward a change framework that highlights concrete actions that can be implemented as a means of facilitating desired change. The ideal sequence of actions, specific activities, research and other support mechanisms, and specific roles for organizational actors (leaders and followers) are outlined in some detail. Finally, CF Transformation activities are mapped onto the proposed change framework as an example of how the framework can assist in the evaluation of ongoing change. The report concludes with some recommendations for managing culture change as CF Transformation continues.
