Brent Smith—Faculty Note: Look ahead to the week 2 assignment as this assignment is preparation for week two. Be sure to indicate the specific change and the company involved from your experience. Identify the company by name if possible. Please use and submit the Excel Organization Change Model Worksheet for this assignment. No other documents need to be prepared. See the link above.

If you have trouble with the provided link for this worksheet, please let me know and I will make it available to you by some other means.

Fill in the left-hand column of the worksheet with the indicated information (mission, vision, values, etc.) and use the right-hand column for additional notes on how the process could have been improved for both top and bottom section of the chart. All boxes should be adequately filled in and completed.

One of the most important boxes is the Goal box. What is the goal of the organizational change? This is not the overall goal of the organization, but the GOAL OF THE CHANGE.

Review the grading rubric for this and all assignments in the course.
