Evaluating Pressures for Change
Being able to recognize potential pressures that require an organization to change its practices or processes is a vital for its success. Examine an organization in the field or industry in which you work, or are planning to work. In 1,000-1,250 words, evaluate the pressures the organization currently faces and discuss the potential effects these pressures could have on the organization. You will use your evaluation of this organization for your Implementing Change assignment.
Include the following:
- Identify and describe the organization you are evaluating. Provide an overview of the industry within which the organization operates.
- Identify the environmental and organizational pressures currently driving organizational change in your field or industry. Explain the origin or reason for these pressures, and explain how they directly affect the viability of your organization.
- Predict what type of organizational changes (first-order/second-order) these pressures may cause within the organization.
- Provide support for your analysis and prediction.
