Review the case study, “Turnaround and Transformation at Duke University Children’s Hospital,” found on pages 25-26 of the course textbook.
Write an APA-formatted essay with a minimum of 900 words that includes the following two sections:
Section 1: In a minimum of 300 words, describe how the three phases of Kurt Lewin’s field theory and process-driven change (Spector’s sequential model) apply to the Duke University case study.
Section 2: In a minimum of 500 words, describe how either Kurt Lewin’s field theory OR process-driven change (Spector’s sequential model) apply to your idea for the Unit VIII Final Project.
Prior to writing section two, spend some time planning out your ideas, considering your strategy options, and truly contemplating the characteristics of your organization and its people. Consider the following:
How would you solve the issue using strategies to align people for the organizational change?
How would you, as leader, strategize and, over time, create an organization culture that reinforces new behaviors?
As leader, what strategies (from Spector, 2013) align with your preliminary ideas? Visualize the change implementation possibilities and the potential fall-out on each component of the organization.
What would you do specifically in anticipation of employee-reactive behavior? Include an introduction and conclusion specific to your findings.
All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
