Module Support

Leadership spelled with dice in front of a device and bookThe first part of deliverable 1 instructs you to locate a case study of an organization experiencing strategic change. Review the support provided in the Leading Change FAQs box at the bottom of the page to learn how to locate case studies.

The second part of the deliverable asks you to research two leadership strategies that were used to drive successful organizational change over the last 10 years. Consider using FAQs in the Leading Change FAQs box below to learn search strategies for locating peer reviewed articles or case studies on this topic. Keep in mind, you will likely want to find two articles or case studies that discuss organizational change as the assignment requires you to create a reference page with at least two sources.

After locating and reading the articles, you are to address specific questions (detailed in the deliverable) in a 2-3 page paper. Be sure to use APA formatting, including a cover page and reference page. New to APA? Refer to the Research and APA content at the top of the page for related resources.

Then compare and contrast the change models used and answer the questions detailed in deliverable 2.
