Assignment Description

Your employer has been going through many challenges this past eighteen months due to the recent financial crises. There has been major challenges throughout the company including, high turnover, software applications being used are outdated, stress is increasing for those employees who have been staying around, and morale is at the lowest point ever for the company . The remaining executives are planning to do a re-organization of the jobs and responsibilities throughout the company. However, each time the executives want to implement the change; another batch of employees resigns. You have been asked by your supervisor to prepare an analysis of what the executive leaders must do. Present your findings as a 4-5 page report in a Word document formatted in APA style. At a minimum, your paper must:

  • Apply the best organizational development process skills the executives should use
  • Apply the change strategies within the short-term and long-term
  • Evaluate and present the impacts of the resources

Present your findings as a 4-5 page Word document formatted in APA style.

Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:

  • Title page: Remember the running head and title in all capital letters.
  • Abstract: This is a summary of your paper, not an introduction. Begin writing in third-person voice.
  • Body: The body of your paper begins on the page following the title page and abstract page, and it must be double-spaced between paragraphs. The typeface should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics except as required for APA level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your paper for this assignment is 3–4 pages. In-text academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.
  • Reference page: References that align with your in-text academic sources are listed on the final page of your paper. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hang indention, italics, and upper- and lower-case usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the reference page is not a bibliography, but it is a further listing of the abbreviated in-text citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-text citation.

The following is Information that our professor posted:

Corporate Change……

As you probably know, Organizational development is about planned change in the organization. To remain competitive and adapt to the changing market demands, organizations are finding themselves having to change the way they do business. We will look at these issues of change by focusing on reinventing the corporation, the challenges of change, and the impact of change on corporate culture.

Change Management…

Traditionally, change management has focused on identifying sources of resistance to change and offering ways to overcome them. More recent contributions have challenged the focus on resistance and have been aimed at creating visions and desired futures, gaining political support for them, and managing the transition of the organization toward them.

One activity involves motivating change and includes creating a readiness for change among organization members and helping them address resistance to change. As you folks probably know, leadership must create an environment in which people accept the need for change and commit physical and psychological energy to it.

Motivation is a critical issue in starting change because ample evidence indicates that people and organizations seek to preserve the status quo and are willing to change only when there are compelling reasons to do so.

Change-different viewpoints

Folks, when we look at the different viewpoints of change we should consider that people and organizations need to experience deep levels of hurt before they will seriously undertake meaningful change.

One method that can help generate sufficient dissatisfaction to produce change is sensitize organizations to pressures for change. Innumerable pressures for change operate both externally and internally to organizations. Modern organizations face unprecedented environmental pressures to change themselves, including heavy foreign competition, rapidly changing technology, and the draw of global markets.

Sometimes, internal pressures to change include new leadership, poor product quality, high production costs, and excessive employee absenteeism and turnover. Before these pressures can serve as triggers for change, however, organizations must be sensitive to them. The pressures must pass beyond an organization’s threshold of awareness if managers are to respond to them.

Organizations can make themselves more sensitive to pressures for change by encouraging leaders to surround themselves with devil’s advocates by cultivating external networks that comprise people or organizations with different perspectives and views.

An Agent of Change…..

When we look at change agents this “change” issue maybe a little harder to understand then we think………

* One who creates dialogue on the most difficult subjects, because they need to be learned, even though the audience may not initially see the benefits.

* One who uses creativity and innovation in trying out new ways, even though the product may not be popular at the start.

* One who looks for challenges and opportunities, and translates them into action, even though time does not permit the effort.

* One who seeks advice and counsel from the very top, and often gives it, even though the risk may be high.

* One who continually searches for personal growth and development, even though the struggle sometimes doesn’t seem worth it.

* One who finds satisfaction and fun in human development, and who permeates others with a positive attitude, even in the presence of adversity.

Corporate leaders are looking for ways to take advantage of an organization’s capabilities, grow business and stay ahead of the competition. They are looking for more than veiled improvements, quick fixes, and fad programs. In order to succeed in this effort, organizations are reinventing themselves. This means that companies are making long range, strategic plans and core changes to the way they do business which requires a systematic approach to organizational development.

Organizational development is a long-range effort to improve an organization’s problem-solving and renewal processes. Through instituting changes, companies take on new characteristics in vision, mission and process. As you probably can guess this does not, however, always happen seamlessly.
