Final project part 2: Change Management Plan (presentation)
This assignment allows you to demonstrate mastery of course outcomes:
Based on your last paper, create a change-management plan. Put yourself in the position of a consultant making recommendations to the CEO of the organization. For this presentation, you should follow the 8 step Change Process by John Kotter that we read about in week 6. Make sure that in your recommendations you address each of the eight steps and how they apply to your organization specifically.
Present your recommendations in a PowerPoint presentation of 10-15 slides. State how the organization can be better prepared to meet the needs and challenges of the future. Defend your argument by using resources to support it.
Your presentation should include the following (at a minimum):
1) an evaluation of the current situation (current culture)
2) an analysis of how the culture should change in order to better address the needs of the future (be specific!)
3) choose one cultural change that needs to happen in the organization. Provide recommendations on how to implement the change, based on Kotter’s 8 step change process.
4) justification and support for the recommended changes, based on both your own observations and the literature (at least three sources)
This assignment counts for 20% of your course grade
Recommendations for change in the culture clearly demonstrate an innovative and direct alignment to the business objectives of the organization and the changes or issues existing. Recommendations are supported by both literature and original data.
Rationale and justification
Rationale and justification are convincing and thorough; needed actions and strategies required of leadership are comprehensive and adequate for change.
Resistance to change
