Research Question: The feasibility of applying cognitive-emotive techniques for change management. Methods: A theoretical analysis of the feasibility of the concepts of cognitive driven behavioural change for the change management in organizations. A cognitive-emotive change management process is proposed and a practical application for a case study is demonstrated that transfers existing psychological tools into the change management practice. Results: Cognitive-emotive concepts provide a theoretical foundation for the behavioural changes that are intended by change management in organizations. The cognitive-emotive techniques can be applied to existing organizational change projects. Further empirical support for the effec-tivity of these techniques for change management is necessary.
