Additional Notes:
1. For this question you will need to read Chapter 1 of the text by Jabri, M. (2012) Managing Organizational Change. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan
2. The change being considered does not have to be a huge or strategic one. The introduction of a new software system at work or a new way of dealing with customers would be appropriate. Or if you have no work experience then think about a change in your personal life such as getting someone you know to change their behaviour e.g. to do their fair share of the cleaning, cooking or shopping). If you are struggling to think of an example then you might also draw upon a scene from a film or television programme.
3. This task is an extension of the work we have been doing in challenging taken-for-granteds. Many of the theories and models that are used by business theorists are very useful. However, if we become very experienced at using them there is a danger that we can only see the world in terms of a Boston Matrix or Porter’s Five Forces etc. This exercise is designed to encourage you to think critically about such models and theories.
