Her dissertation focused on the inherent loss of stability suffered by organizations introducing and implementing organizational change initiatives. The research resulted in the validated model of an Organizational Loss of Effectiveness (LOE Model) explaining the tendency of individuals, often subconsciously, to struggle, resist, and potentially disrupt the organizational change initiative. Dr. Grady continues to build upon her research in the field of change management and extended her original model to include a validated index (LOE Index©) that quantitatively measures the tendency of individuals within the organization to embrace organizational change initiatives. The index focuses on the employee, and how factors inherent in change affect their performance. Subsequently, this shift in performance will have a negative impact on the overall health of the organization. Additional areas of research interest include Organizational Trust and its respective impact on organizational change initiatives.
