case study of a significant change management event

case study of a significant change management event.

Order Description

The assignment is to prepare a case study of a significant change event.

Select an example of significant Change Management to develop a case study, based on recent historical examples (last 50 years).

The example may be from any sphere (company, industry, technology or social), but should ideally be related to engineering practice.

The Change event should include material on:
Pre-change: Contextual background to the event
Change: Detailed aspects of what changed and how it changed
Post-change: Outcomes of the change undertaken

Date sources:
Use should be made of appropriate secondary sources (university library resources, published case studies, academic papers and articles, news sources, company

information, consultant or industry reports, etc.) to prepare a case study describing the change events.
It is expected that at least 8-12 good quality publications will be referenced, from a variety of sources. These will be used to provide source material and to support

the arguments in your case study. Note that opposing views and perspectives may be referenced and discussed.
Although reliant on secondary/published sources, good academic practice in referencing, citation and generation of original discussion/interpretation should be

applied. Care should be taken to avoid plagiarism.

The submission should be in Powerpoint format (or word but follow similar format to below)
Slide set suitable for presentation
Slides to be clear and self-explanatory
Good use made of appropriate graphics, tables, charts, images, etc. with supporting text
20 Slides maximum, including title slide and references
Notes section for each slide of ~300 to ~400 words approx. to provide supporting arguments and explanation (Guideline total 2,000 words).
Appropriate use of citation and reference to sources

The case study should contain:

Contextual Background
Provide background to the driver for change and the constraints that existed at the time. These may be the current market conditions, background, etc. that affected

the need for change and how it was adopted/resisted.

Range of Data
Use should be made of a range of data, covering relevant perspectives
How do you interpret the data? Is it valid? Is anything missing?
What are the quantified and qualitative aspects of the data?
Who are the sources? What are their biases?

Timeline of Change
Timeline of key activities or events through the change process

Detail of Change
What was the nature of the change?
Who led the change?
How was the change implemented?

Change Theory Applied
Was a specific change theory applied?
What change theory might have been most appropriate?

Consequences of Change
What was the outcome of the change initiative, with particular reference to unintended consequences, if any.
How might the change have been done differently?
