Overview
To be an effective leader, you must be able to lead change efforts in a collaborative way that demonstrates the culture of the organization. At some point, all leaders will need to lead an organizational change effort or be part of an upper-level team that plans and implements it.
Your final project in this course is to develop a change plan based on a case study. Your plan will use Kotter’s change implementation plan components for an organization. Kotter’s plan will explain what you should look at during each step of a change effort. Changes take time to put in place. You should consider all parts of an organization when making these changes. Be sure to use scholarly research to defend your responses and support your explanations.
This project addresses the following course outcomes:
Determine the root causes and driving forces for effectively implementing an organizational change effort
Diagnose gap differences between current situations and targeted goals of change efforts for determining the needs of a change effort
Analyze the impact of a change effort for its implications on the roles of employees
Predict areas and causes of resistance within an organization to develop a well-informed, effective change plan
Determine the communication needs in a change effort involving employees for successfully implementing a change effort
Enhance the influence of organizational culture on organizational change efforts
Prompt
For this project, you will create a change plan based on a case study. Your plan will include stated objectives that you will follow to accomplish an intended goal or goals. After setting your objectives, you will work backward to create a timeline for each phase of the change plan. This change plan will analyze what the organization needs to make the change successful and what to look out for.
Specifically, you must address the following critical elements:
Analysis and Diagnosis
