Evaluating Pressures for Change

Evaluating Pressures for Change

Being able to recognize potential pressures that require an organization to change its practices or processes is a vital for its success. Examine an

organization in the field or industry in which you work, or are planning to work. In 1,000-1,250 words, evaluate the pressures the organization

currently faces and discuss the potential effects these pressures could have on the organization. You will use your evaluation of this organization

for your Implementing Change assignment.

Include the following:

Identify and describe the organization you are evaluating. Provide an overview of the industry within which the organization operates.

Identify the environmental and organizational pressures currently driving organizational change in your field or industry. Explain the origin or

reason for these pressures, and explain how they directly affect the viability of your organization.

Predict what type of organizational changes (first-order/second-order) these pressures may cause within the organization.

Provide support for your analysis and prediction.
