Understanding Your Organizations Change NeedsApplying a standardized organizational change strategy used by another leader may provide a starting point for establishing a change management process, but it may not necessarily produce positive results. In fact, the uniqueness of the organization and its culture will determine the type of change strategy needed and how and when to implement the change. When initially recognizing the need for organizational change, it is important to not only identify the transformation needed but to consider the specific internal and external stakeholders the change will affect. This is critical because the change management strategy must contain steps that will help you mitigate the influence of stakeholders who may disrupt the success of the change. The strategy should also contain training for continual improvement so that training is an integral part of the change and the change process includes the means for monitoring or measuring the success of the change.Post an assessment of the role of organizational development in promoting effective change management, including how you would present this key information to stakeholders in a business setting. Your assessment should address the following:Based on your readings this week, what would you say are the two fundamental and critical aspects of organizational development that enable successful organizational change to happen and promote lasting success? Mention the concepts and theories when explaining your position with correct APA citations and references. Discuss how an organization you were a part of introduced a change effort, and explain whether you believe the effort was successful or unsuccessful using the OD and change vernacular. (In this case, you should define success in relation to the acceptance of the change by the employees and whether the organizational change was sustainable, lasting, and met the initial objectives.) Additionally, provide one or two suggestions for things that could be improved for future change projects. If you had to present your findings to a group of key stakeholders, how would you organize this presentation, and what presentation techniques would you employ? Think about a professional presentation that was particularly effective or that spurred several questions. What strategies would you implement to receive and address critical feedback? Share any lessons learned from prior work, life, or seminar presentations that would help you effectively present your assessment and gain buy-in.Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this weeks Learning Resources and at least one additional scholarly source.
