    This means that top management or someone authorized by top management is aware that a problem exists and has decided to seek help in solving it. They may be introduced by a change agent as part of an improvement program, or they may be used by the client following a program to check on the state of the organization's health, or to effect necessary changes in its own behavior. In their three-year study of UK healthcare organizations, the researchers identified three different mechanisms through which knowledge leaders actively "transposed", "appropriated" or "contended" change concepts, effectively translating and embedding these in organizational practice. In addition, individual-level variables retain importance as background or contextual information when working at the group or organizational level, as different change approaches will work either better or worse with different types of individuals or groups of individuals. Beckhard reports several cases in which line people have been trained in OD and have returned to their organizations to engage in successful change-assignments.

Consulting psychologists-whatever their level of expertise at the group and organizational levels-are wise to understand people at the individual level if they wish to be effective in their various roles. Schein's book was a pioneer in moving many of these issues forward and played an important role in bringing the focus to the human side of the equation at work.

For example, individuals tend to congregate and interact in their work lives with other people who in important psychological respects are similar to themselves see Holland, ; Lowman,a, b.

When Schein wrote Process Consultation, the most prevalent model of consultation was the purchase of expert information or an expert service.

Enterprising interests influence people to enjoy and seek out leadership or persuasive roles, and to engage in activities that involve taking charge of groups, setting ambitious goals and persuading others to achieve them.
