Organizational Conflict Model


Definition: the Organizational Conflict Model is a model by Louis R. Pondy describing the chain of conflict evolution within an organization.
According to Pondy, organizational conflict develops through five basic stages:
1. Latent Conflict
2. Perceived Conflict
3. Felt Conflict
4. Manifest Conflict
5. Conflict Aftermath
According to the Pondy's model, it is not necessary for every conflict to pass through all the phases described, but the evolution of the conflict can be avoided through its stages by controlling it in advance.
