TASK
back to top
This assessment will enable you to evaluate and reflect on three topics studied during the session. Each topic question will give you the opportunity to critically apply your knowledge and learning from this subject to a real-life situation. A ‘question-answer’ format to be followed for this assignment. Detail included in the Presentation criterion below.
Question number 1 is compulsory. In addition to answering Question 1, please choose any two from questions 2 – 5.
Since each question asks you to share an example of a change project (unless you are choosing 1-b for the compulsory answer, you can tackle your three selected questions in one of two ways:
Option 1: At the beginning of answering the questions, set up the change project scenario so that you don’t have to repeat the same organisation/business situation in each answer thus saving words. Then link each subsequent answer to the organisation/business situation you described in the beginning. This option will only be viable if you are giving all the examples from one change project.
Option 2: For each answer, include the organisation/business situation you are relating that answer to i.e. describe the change project that you have been involved with along with your analysis for each answer. This option will be suitable if you will be referring to multiple change projects.
Questions
Question 1 (Compulsory) – Choose a or b
a) Discuss and analyse the role of ethical behaviour in a change management project that you have been involved within your organisation/industry/business. Evaluate whether ethics were compromised in the change project /suggested change in case ethics weren’t compromised. What could have been done/was done to prevent this from happening?
b) Refer to the Lakeland Wonders Case and discuss what ethical issues do you find surrounding the organisational change process? What recommendations would you like to propose to the management in order for the change initiative to be successful and ethical?
Question 2. Communication is a key process and a core skill in the management of change. Give an example of a change project that you have been part of. Was the change planned or unplanned? Critically analyse the behavioural style used by a change leader. Was this style appropriate for the context? If appropriate, justify the behaviour. If not appropriate, suggest how it could have been improved. (relates to topic 6)
Question 3. Give an example of an organisational change that you have experienced perhaps as a manager of change or an employee working with a change or a business owner. Describe the model of change that was used. Critically analyse the key elements that you observed. Which elements did not work out as expected? What recommendations would you suggest for a similar future change? (relates to topic 7)
Question 4. From a real-world (organisation) setting (could be where you work or have worked, your own business, or the industry in general), critically analyse and evaluate an appreciative inquiry approach that you have experienced. (relates to topic 8)
Question 5. Reflect on your own understanding of the nature of resistance, based on Topic 9. Think about what you have come to understand to be the meaning of resistance to change – what is it like? What insights on managing resistance would you add, from your own experience of change? Discuss and analyse with the help of a problem that you have encountered in your organisation/industry/business. Include recommendations for improving the success of the initiative taking into consideration ethical and sustainable issues (relates to topic 9)
You must use at least 4 academic references for each question (minimum of 12 references for the whole assessment) to support your answers. In answering the questions, you may use diagrams, tables, graphs and so on if you wish.
