Key Factors That Impact Change

28 Mar
Module 4 Assignment 2: RA 1: Key Factors That Impact Change
Description of RA:
In this assignment, you will analyze a case study to determine key factors that impact change. Then, you will conduct a literature review of articles that address those key factors. Finally, on the basis of your research, you will determine the three factors that are most important to the success of a change initiative and justify your choices.
Background:
Read the following case study:
This case study describes a change initiative in two units of a large organization. Although both units had identical support and resources available, the outcomes were quite different.
Tasks:
  • Discuss each unit’s specific strengths and opportunities for improvement as the change was implemented.
  • Determine three to four factors that most impacted the outcome of the change initiative presented in the case study.
  • Research at least four to six articles that address the factors identified above. Consider leadership challenges such as resistance to change, communication factors, and ethical issues that impact change initiatives.
  • On the basis of your findings from your review of the literature, determine the three factors that are most important to the success of an organizational change project. Justify your answer with specific examples and concrete information from your research.
Your final product will be in a Microsoft Word document of approximately 10–12 pages in length. Utilize at least 4–6 sources from professional literature in your research. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu or.gov). Your response should demonstrate ethical scholarship in appropriate and accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA) and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
