Change Model Paper
In an essay (1,300 words), explore various models of organizational change.
There are many valid organizational change models. Most change models include discussions on strategic vision, the role of the leader, resistance to change, and the communication process. The purpose of this assignment is to introduce the student to principles common to most change models.
To successfully complete this assignment, research organizational change models. Select TWO different models of organizational change (please do not use Kotter’s 8 Steps of Change, as this model is thoroughly discussed elsewhere in the course).
Write a comparison essay that discusses how each model addresses the following issues:
• Role of the leader in the change initiative.
• Overcoming resistance to change.
• Communication process.
Application: Within your paper, critically evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of each model. (Note: critical and creative thinking are expected.)
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines. An abstract is not required.
