Using a Change Model
In this module and in your readings, you were introduced to several models of change and the philosophies and frameworks on which they were based. You were also made aware of the different types of challenges that cause resistance to change strategies. In this module’s discussion, you will analyze a change model of your choice and evaluate its merits and applicability. For this discussion, use the context of your current (or previous) organization or that of an organization with which you are familiar.
Identify a change model that you might employ if you were a change leader in your organization and were about to implement a change initiative.
Research challenges to organizational change and the change model of your choice. Use resources 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, .org, or .gov).
On the basis of your research and experience, in a minimum of 400 words, respond to the following points:
Identify a model and explain why you chose this model, comparing its merits against its shortcomings. Include a discussion on how you might adjust for or mitigate the shortcomings.
Through research, find a case example where your chosen change model was used in a real-world situation. Describe and evaluate its success or failure in bringing about change.
Conclude with your thoughts on whether the case example cemented your choice or caused you to start considering another model. Explain.
