Comment on the topic( the broad topic) by looking at someones opinion on change & definition, or direct quote or identifying the challenges of change.
Make a link between change and innovation. Looking at how they are connected. Then evaluate how relevant they are to organisational performance.
Say what incremental innovation is & arguing what change model would support incremental or radical innovation. Define why organisational performance is an important part of innovation & change. Show examples of high performing successfully innovative companies & what change model might they have used.
Briefly introduce the 3 models start with the old model then move onto the latest model. To look at what key principles are these models based on? Their views on change are they similar or not?
To look at how change should be managed. The approach these models promote and what sort of planning do they suggest for change. The scale of change is it large organisational change or small & look at which model is best for this. A good model of change will tell the change agent how the change should be lead. Look at leadership is it autocratic or transitional.
