In today's session, Group members were presented with education regarding the stages of change and the characteristic of each stage of change. Group members were then identified and shared which stage of change that he/she presently was in; and discuss how to progress to the next stage of change.
The primary two reasons for having an assessment of implementing change is to have proper data and analysis so that the change can grow from an idea to a proper implemented procedure. The different sources of data that are collected will be useless until they are properly analyzed with respect to projected changes. Therefore, it is important to focus on data collection, analyzing, and summarizing to form a proper decision on changes that are appropriate. A properly analyzed and planned implementation of change will be strong against any resistance, identify areas where there might be potential problems, and will help develop strategies to begin the process of identifying
Using the TCO you selected from the list above, which you felt was most relevant to your project this term, write an essay answer explaining how the change management you saw in one of your companies from your project this term followed or failed to follow the theory of success ingrained in the TCO you have selected.
The change plan forms used encouraged them to not only identify steps that they could take but people who could be supports as they worked toward making those changes. While there were a lot of change plans filled out, not everyone succeeded the first try with their identified goal. There were several successes noted during the course of this practicum. One client, who is able to read and write at a 3rd grade level, can now list his medications, how many milligrams each medication is and what he take them for. The is another client who had been very aggressive who has been able to learn more assertive ways to communicate with others and finally one last client who has been working toward earning money to pay child support and wanting to move out on her own who got a job. These things were all noted by staff on the RCF. They were pleased to see a positive change in those individuals. Unfortunately, I had to come to the realization that I was not going to magically fix everyone. I am, however, proud of the progress and positive changes that some have

The following critique is written for the reflection review of change management. The report proceeds with a review of each question that was assigned as well as presents a brief exploration of my experience and ideas that were acquired from taking change management classes.
Leading and managing change require a solid theoretical foundation. This assignment will research the theoretical elements of change and change management. Addressed will be the following: Organic Evolution of Change, Formulating Strategic Development Approaches, Leadership and Management Skills and Gathering and Analyze Data. As societies continue to evolve and changing demand creates the need for new products and services, businesses often are forced to make changes to stay competitive. The businesses that continue to survive and even thrive are usually the ones that most readily adapt to change. A variety of factors can cause a business to reevaluate its methods of operation. According to literature from the past two
Change theories. Kurt Lewin’s three step change process can be used to promote change within the units that will be affected by this DNP project. Lewin’s theory states that for change to be successful, three steps need to occur: unfreezing from the
239). They recommend selecting a change theory early on in when implementing the restructuring of a process. Communication is vital to the success of change which fosters the "end users" transition in the process (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2015). Communication needs to be constant and transparent for individuals to become committed. "Change is often a slow process that requires continual positive reinforcement" (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2015, p. 240). Lastly, understanding that new concepts and technology involves risks, but our attitude toward failure is knowing that if the outcome was not what we anticipated, it's okay, but yet we are willing to learn from our failures and try
The author/ program managers claims the Theory of Change model provided both structure in the program design and metrics to measure how effective it was; thereby, “observation, feedback, and many other assessment/evaluation methods were used to collect data leading to the outcomes. The data collected; according to Meeker (2012) was invaluable in enabling them to continually
Change management is relevant as though the research finds that change is taking place at an ever-increasing pace, the evidence suggests that most change initiatives fail. For example, recent CIPD research suggested that less than 60% of re-organisations met their stated objectives which are usually bottom line improvement. This is consistent with other published research.
Using this company as an example, highlight the dangers involved in undertaking change without careful consideration of where "change" might lead.
Text of Question: A survey by McKinsey & Company (2008) reported that two-thirds of organisational change initiatives fail. In what ways could a fuller understanding of the ‘human’ aspects of change help improve this success rate?
Burke (2014) stated that organizations change from day to day. The changes that take place in organizations can be intentional or unintentional. Generally, the changes that occur is accidental. It is important to have a broader and deeper knowledge of understanding organization change. Understanding what is currently happening as well as trends in which the organization is functioning can provide such awareness.
