Option #2: Organizational Leadership: Initiating Phase

Select a hypothetical project, a project with which you have personal familiarity, or a project you research in the CSU-Global Library or on the internet. Summarize each of the following suggestions by Lussier and Achua (2015, p. 413) for successful change execution, describe it, and use an example situation or aspect from your selected project in your discussion of each suggestion:

  • “Continuing to articulate a compelling reason for the change.
  • Eliminating policies, procedures, and behaviors that undermine change efforts.
  • Maintaining adequate human, financial and material resources.
  • Forming a coalition of supporters and experts to counter any opposition.
  • Celebrating milestones along the way.
  • Staying the course in spite of perceived difficulties.
  • Incentivizing workers with recognition and rewards.
  • Keeping the process transparent.”

Your paper should include the following titled sections:

  • Introduction
  • Summary of Selected Project
  • A titled section for each of the Lussier and Achua sections listed on p. 413 of the textbook. You may abbreviate. For example, you could abbreviate “Celebrating milestones along the way” (Lussier & Achua, 2015, p. 413) to “Celebrating Milestones” in order to create a concise section title.
  • Conclusion
  • References

Your paper should be 4-5 pages in length and conform to CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. Include at least two scholarly references in addition to the course textbooks. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
