Planning and Implementing Change (discussion)
Select a time, in your organization, where an organizational change was made. Provide details about the change and why it was necessary. Then, detail why you believe your organization did or did not follow the steps associated with effective change.
If you believe that your organization did follow the steps, explain which steps were best followed and the benefits of following these steps. If you believe that your organization did not follow these steps, explain the implications associated with not following the steps and what occurred. For information about the steps created by Beer et al. (1990), please review page 330 in your textbook.
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations along with two scholarly peer-reviewed references in supporting your answer. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.
You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion questions and post answers to this weekly discussion question and/or your instructor’s response to your posting. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
