Assignment 2: Impact of Culture on Change
Conduct a review of the literature on the impact of organizational culture on change initiatives and, on the basis of the literature review, create a 2- to-3-page Microsoft Word document.
In your document:
- Analyze the impact of organizational culture on change initiatives. Identify ways in which an effective change agent can build a change-friendly organizational culture.
- Create a prioritized list of five characteristics or skills necessary for an effective change leader (5: Least Important–1: Most Important) on the basis of your readings. Explain why each characteristic or skill is important and justify your ranking.
- Explain how change leaders can integrate ethical principles into the change process and facilitate healthy change within an organization.
Your final product will be in a Microsoft Word document of approximately 3–5 pages in length. Utilize at least two sources from professional literature in your research. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu or .gov). Your response should demonstrate ethical scholarship in appropriate and accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA) and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
- By Week 2, Day 7, save your document as M2_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc and submit the document to the M2 Assignment 2 Dropbox.
