Scenario: You are working in a school or organization
where you see several opportunities to improve an aspect of the
organization that could support their mission. Since you are taking
this class and learning about leading change, you decide to focus on one
problem area that could help the school or organization to improve and
write a strategy/action plan that will lead to planning for
organizational changes in subsequent weeks in this course.
*Note: The problem you identify for this week’s
assignment should be a problem/change that is significant enough to
continue to plan for throughout the course. The problem/change that you
choose should be related to the mission and vision of your organization
and if addressed through your planning in this course, could improve
the outcomes of your school or organization.
Part 1: Your plan should discuss contextual
information to describe your school or organization. Discuss the
following in narrative format:
- Describe the organization and your role in the organization
- Describe the mission and vision of the organization
- Discuss the change your feel needs to occur to improve your school or organization or a problem you feel needs to be solved
Part 2: Create a chart similar to the one provided in
Step One of the text (Spiro, 2011, p. 20) to determine possible
strategies and actions that could address the problem. Discuss a
minimum of three strategies and two actions per strategy (total of six
actions). Additionally, include who would be responsible for specific
actions, a general timeline, and ideas for tangible evidence and
measurable results for each action.
This assignment should be two- to four- pages in length and use APA
format for formatting, in-text citations, and references. Include an
introduction and conclusion paragraph. Use at least two sources beyond
the textbook, with at least one source being peer-reviewed.
