Capitalizing on recent publications, this paper studies the influence of change agents on positive organizational change. With qualitative research involving internal consultants as change agents, findings have shown that current positive change models, specifically the theory of psychological capital, require contextual enhancements to be anchored in organizational change. In conjunction with traditional change models, and further research and case studies that facilitate the transition to incorporate the relevant models, internal consultants attain the ability to induce positive change in organizations.
