Hypothesis 4: Change magnitude will be positively related to compliance, cooperation, and championing forms of change behavior.
We further proposed that change magnitude would operate as a boundary condition in shaping compliance to change; this compliance would then reflect an involuntary and obligatory aspect of change behavior that may be subject to situational constraints.
Hypothesis 5: Change magnitude will moderate the relationship between employees' change efficacy and compliance with change, such that the relationship is more strongly positive when change magnitude is small than when it is large.
In general, it can be summarized that spatial distribution of the slopes of seasonal precipitation varies in different season; the slopes of precipitation in spring, autumn, and winter show a relatively smaller change magnitude while the summer precipitation exhibits a larger change range.
However, a converse spatial disparity of the station based average number of DP95 can be concluded in comparison to the spatial variation of the TP95 (Figures 7 and 8(a)) and that more days of extreme precipitation (up to 7.2) occur in the southern part and the lowest number (below 3.8) can be detected in the northern part; this also shows a south-north transition and the average number of DP95 for the whole basin in the studying period is 5.1 days with a change magnitude from 2.45 to 8 days.
In the paper, I employ two concepts: technology Frames and the order of change magnitude surrounding technology change.
