Managing Change Paper Instructions
Introduction: This paper should be a combination of the theories and concepts you have learned about management and their applications to managing change. In addition, you need to address how the change will affect human resources and your recommendations in that regard.
Description: Using the skills and theories learned in class, you will apply those concepts to the workplace to implement a new service, a new procedure, or any change in the way the department operates. You will need to identify a situation such as one of these that you can use for this assignment. It is preferable to use a workplace setting you are familiar with. If this is not feasible, please get in touch with your instructor. Briefly describe this situation in your essay, but note that most of the essay should focus on the questions below.
Remove yourself from the role of employee and think of yourself as an outside consultant. Questions you should ask when preparing your change include, but are not limited to, the following:
How will you sell this change to management/employees?
How will your change affect management/employees?
What is the likelihood that management/those affected will approve the change?
What is in it for management/employees?
Will the change create more or less work for management/employees?
What will be the overall benefits for management/employees to accept this proposal?
Can you prove that this proposal for change affects the management/supervision of your organization/department?
What is the impact on human resources in the organization? Will there need to be an increase (or decrease) in staff? Will there be any training needs as a result of the change?
