Q: I am trying to get information on Force Field Analysis. Can you please provide me more details on the subject?
A: Thank you for contacting ASQ. I received your request for more information regarding force field analysis.
The Quality Improvement Glossary by Donald L. Siebels defines force field analysis as a “technique for analyzing the forces that aid or hinder an organization in reaching an objective. An arrow pointing to an objective is drawn down the middle of a piece of paper. The factors that will aid the objective’s achievement, called the driving forces, are listed on the left hand side of the arrow. The factors that will hinder its achievement, called the restraining forces, are listed on the right side of the arrow.”
