NERY, Vanessa de Fátima; NEIVA, Elaine Rabelo  and  FRANCO, Kettyplyn Sanches. Factor structure of the behavioral responses to organizational change scale. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.1, pp. 79-91. ISSN 1677-0471.

Behavioral responses are critical to success in organizational change. The present study describes the search for construct validity evidence for the Behavioral Responses to Organizational Change Scale, an instrument that integrates two behavioral dimensions - supportive behavior and resistance - on the same scale. The scale was also constructed in two versions: one with the referent at the individual level and one at the collective level. To this end, exploratory factor analyses (N = 239 and N = 294) and confirmatory factor analyzes (N = 400 and N = 424) of the scale's two versions were performed and results are compared to discuss the level of analysis question. The results corroborated the pertinence of a two-factor solution, with 11 items, despite the correlation between the factors. Confirmatory factor analysis ratified the results found in EFA. As to the instrument's accuracy, good indices of internal consistency were verified through Cronbach's alpha coefficients,
