Competency

Evaluate different change management models.

Instructions

Gaining an understanding of the various models of leadership theory is critical in order to understand what skills and abilities are needed to influence the desired change in an organization.

Research at least two organizations that have had similar issues and successes during a change management process.

For this assignment, write a 2-3 page analysis of the problems and the change models that were implemented to address each organization’s problems.

Next, you will compare and contrast the change models used.

Assignment Requirements are as follows:

  1. Provide an overview of the issues that each organization faced.
  2. Include an example of at least three similarities and three differences between each change model.
  3. The paper should include an APA formatted cover page and reference page.
  4. The paper should include at least two peer-reviewed sources, such as journal articles from the Rasmussen Library.

Additional Information for Assignment

Introduction

In this 5 – 9-sentence paragraph, introduce the two organizations by name and industry. If they are well-known (Delta or Google or Sears or Kodak) introduce them briefly but it is alright to assume that readers are familiar with orgs this large and/or established. More introduction is needed if the organization is smaller or not well-known — be sure to describe the product or service they provide. Briefly state the issue each faced that required change leadership. Perhaps a merger/acquisition, perhaps a technological development, or sudden departure of a long time CEO or President.

Compare and Contrast: Organizations and Situations

In this section, clearly state three ways the organizations and the issues faced were similar. Then state three examples of how they were different. A detailed description of the organizations and their situations should require three to four paragraphs.

Compare and Contrast: The Models

Then, state assertively the change model you think was used in each case. Be clear about how each model is different and how they are the same. You might use a table or graphic for this:

Text Box: In the places where the circles overlap, detail facts that apply to both models – the similarities

Be sure to address the contrast and comparison to the situations faced as well as to the models themselves. This is your chance to demonstrate an understanding of the models in theory and in practice.
