Tasks:

Conduct a review of the literature on the impact of organizational culture on change initiatives and, on the basis of the literature review, create a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document.

In your document:

  • Analyze the impact of organizational culture on change initiatives. Identify ways in which an effective change agent can build a change-friendly organizational culture.
  • Create a prioritized list of five characteristics or skills necessary for an effective change leader (5: Least Important–1: Most Important) on the basis of your readings. Explain why each characteristic or skill is important and justify your ranking.
