Using the topic, you selected during week #2 of the class, write a 7-page essay in APA that answers the following questions:
• What the topic is about?
• Why this topic interests you?
• What are the major findings from the scholarly sources you found?
• How will you apply your research to your academic or career goals?
• A summary section that ties everything up at the end of the paper.
This paper should be written in first person and must have an abstract. It also must have seven scholarly references, at a minimum. Ideally, these seven references will be the ones you listed in your annotated bibliography.
Keeps your use of quotes to an absolute bare minimum. If you fill up your paper with a bunch of quotes, it’s going to be scored a zero. Please use common sense.
The easiest way to write this paper is to do what we did earlier in the class. Pretend we are all sitting around a campfire and you are sharing material with your fellow classmates.
Essentially, here’s what I will be grading you on:
• Does this student understand the material?
• Can this student demonstrate synthesis through writing?
• Can this student apply critical thinking skills on the topic they have chosen?
• Can this student write in their own words?
• Can this student write at the graduate level?
Remember that your final paper is automatically checked for plagiarism through turnitin.com. Do not make the mistake of thinking you can take a shortcut. The system will catch you and flag your paper.

Since the turn of the millennium, organizational change management has been part of every company`s change strategy. The sudden shift in management is due to the emergence of new markets and innovative technologies which constantly rendered once powerful business models obsolete. As such, capital flow and investor demands have become unpredictable and this is the reason why is most companies keep on changing to align with the demand of the markets. One of the most popular approaches businesses apply to implement change is organizational change management. The approach incorporates and other elements to enable the business adopt change faster with as little pressure as possible.
It is important to note that the change process is usually slow and sometimes may not lead to the anticipated results. According to 2013 study by the Katzenbach Center, only 54% of the major change initiatives are successful. The success rate is that low because when change efforts go wrong companies not only lose based on the costs involved but also in the form of confusion, lost opportunities and diminished morale. To avoid such situations, it is important that leaders follow the due process when trying to implement change within their companies (Aguirre & Alpern, 2014). The leaders must first identify a reason why a change is necessary, solicit the support of key stake holders, set objectives of the change, acknowledge small wins and never establish that everything is accomplished. In other words, change is always progressive.
Identifying Problems that Necessitate Change
The Major challenge face by modern corporate leaders is how to successfully adopt change. The reason being that in the modern business environment is dynamic to the point that business models may be rendered obsolete with little changes in technology, consumer behaviour and so on. Therefore, without doing things differently, it will be unlikely for a company to survive.
