Planning For Change In An Organization

Purpose of Assignment

Students begin to strategize on how a change initiative is planned and the potential obstacles to the change’s success. They will also begin to address the organizational resistance by determining a potential solution.

Assignment Steps

Consider an existing organization you are familiar with, such as an employer, or a company for which you would like to work that operates under a traditional management model. The company’s new CEO is looking to grow the company into a sustainable organization. In her initial evaluation, the CEO realizes that the traditional management approach is not compatible with being sustainable and wants to explore integrating a Corporate Social Responsibility program as an initial step to becoming a sustainable organization.

Create a 1,400-word change management brief or report.

Explain how change management, in the context of Lewin’s or Kotter’s model (select only one), can help the organization become a socially-responsible organization.

Apply Lewin’s or Kotter’s model and outline the following:

  • Define the project goals in the context of change management.
  • Propose an action plan for creating change.
  • Establish how progress will be measured.
  • Determine how performance will be validated.

Include at least four peer reviewed references.

Format your assignment consistent with APA guidelines.
