· The Change Analysis and Plan (CAP) or Project is designed to achieve two objectives:
o Student demonstrates the ability to apply course models and content to an actual change situation or organizational problem.
o By using the student’s own organization for the CAP, the student can demonstrate to his or her organization management a solution to a real problem.
· Using the CAP Guideline (see assessment section in Blackboard) the student will apply the format in the guideline to his or her own organization to:
o Describe the organization’s context;
o Describe the management problem, using either the McKinsey 7-S, Weisbord Six-Box, or other approved (by me) diagnostic model.
o Upon completion of the diagnosis, the student will develop a change initiative (using the Kotter 8-step model or another model approved by me and implementing using the AHF leadership model) and plan for implementation.
o This CAP will be prepared using APA formatting, and must contain at least five external references using appropriate peer-reviewed journal articles (NOT WIKIPEDIA; NOT something just Googled). Student may use other articles for support from any source (except WIKIPEDIA)
Student will use 12-pt font size of Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri font.
I will apply the case later used for the CAP
