For this assignment you must take the role of a change consultant, employed in order to manage change within an organisation (you use ONE case study organisations provided GOJO(i sent it to you)
The Managing Director of the organisation has asked you to write a 2500 word essay through which you should clearly outline a potential change; assess the drivers and resistors; and, having critically analysed a variety of contrasting approaches to change management, explain which is the most useful approach in this particular case.
Your response should include examples of how change is/was managed in other organisational contexts AND reference to a wide range of academic literature on organisational change.
The focus of your discussion should be ‘how to manage change’ NOT whether the idea for change is a good one.
You MUST also include a reflective analysis of the value of the training you have received on change management to date (ie. the residential or classroom-based sessions of Feb 2014). This should be provided as an appendix, comprising 500 words max. (this does NOT count towards the overall assignment word count) and should explain whether this form of delivery was ‘value for money’.
Word count: 2500 words
Be aware that there will be marks deducted for overlength work (see the module handbook).
