Description Overcoming Barriers to Change Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be a minimum of 300 words in length and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. Please be sure you review the grading rubric before beginning your post and responses. This week you’ve explored several topics including innovation, diversity, human resources, and several elements of change. Innovation and diversity both require change. Change, however, isn’t an easy area to manage for yourself, the organization as a whole, or for each employee individually. It takes skill and planning to successfully navigate the change process. First, read Chapters 7 & 8 in the text. Next, please watch the following video clips from the lab: Chapter 07: Concept Clips: Change Process Chapter 07: Concept Clips: Resistance to Change Chapter 07: Concept Clips: Need for Change Research the company you have chosen for your final project, finding something in recent news (less than 8 weeks old) that pertains to a significant change effort that has happened recently, is currently happening, or if you can’t find a change effort under way, then choose something currently going on that really needs to change. Briefly explain the change itself, then explain what the company did (is doing, or should do) to be successful in the change process, why the change was necessary, and what roadblocks or resistance they met (or would likely meet). Did they handle the change process successfully? What would you have done differently if you were leading their change effort? Review a minimum of two of your classmate’s posts and respond with additional insights, information, questions, or links to more information on the company changes they shared. Would their approach to managing change work for your organization? Why or why not? Your responses should be academic in nature and linked to research and management topics discussed this week rather than personal stories of shopping with the company they chose for example.
