Abstract or Description

This article focuses on managing change in the context of professional experience of a colleague, a former mathematics teacher working with adult learners at a South London School, who I will call Mrs. “‘D’”, a pseudonym. It caused me great concern to experience a challenging change, which was faced with resistance from the manager, known as Mrs. “‘M’”, a pseudonym. Thus, how could one manage and implement change despite resistance? In this article, I will explore change from theoretical and practical perspectives.
