Organisational Change Project
Instructions for Organisational Change Project (2500 words) due in Week 13 (50% of the course grade)
Each student will write a paper synthesising organisational change theory and practice in the unit. This project is creating a case study of an organization that requires a change intervention.
The paper will cover the change project and includes the following:
(a) what is/are the outcome/s expected from this change project;
(b) what is the current reality and how did it become so;
(c) how substantial is the gap between current reality and expected outcome/s;
(d) description and details of the proposed change
(e) address any resistance to or other barriers for change;
(f) identify the change agents and assess if they are willing and able; and
(g) given the responses to the previous questions, is change feasible? Implications of the change, both positive and negative as well as evaluation of the effectiveness of the post-change organization must be considered.
Findings must be summarised and a concise conclusion included. Appropriate scholarly sources must be integrated: a minimum of ten articles from peer-reviewed journals. Appropriate biblical and ethical principles must be included.
