Week 4 Assignment
Research the various change models used by organizations today. After assessing these models, create a change model conducive to your field, and that will work within your organization’s culture. This model should serve to implement a strategic process that can help your organization integrate a change and respond to the internal or external driving forces that affect organizational success.
Create a visual representation of your model using a graphic organizer of your choice (flow chart, concept map, etc.). The design of your model will be unique and relevant to your organization, based on a critical analysis of its culture and behavior. However, your model must demonstrate the necessary steps for realistic implementation. Your model will be assessed on the quality of strategic implementation you design, the support you present for your model, and inclusion of the following concepts:
- Methods to evaluate the need for change
- Approach and criteria for choosing individuals or teams necessary for a change initiative
- Communication strategies
- Strategies to gather stakeholder support and overcome resistance
- Implementation strategies
- Sustainability strategies
Once you have created your model, prepare a 15-20 slide PowerPoint presentation to present your model and demonstrate how this model is relevant to your organization and why it will work well within your organization’s culture. In conclusion, discuss why this model will lead to sustainable change when most change initiatives fail. You will utilize this change model for your final paper.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
Hello everyone – your Week 4 assignment requires you to prepare a PowerPoint presentation that contains specific information including your change model. This model will be a graphic that you have developed to portray designed to address proposed changes in your organization. You can use a flow chart of any other pictorial view to portray it – I’ve added an example below of one:
Change Model XYZ Corporation
This model depicts a change process from start to finish and is only one example of how to present it in a flow chart – this is not the only way to present a model – I DO NOT want to see a copy of any other models – this must be your own work.

When creating your PowerPoint presentation remember to keep each slide concise – make notes and follow the points outlined in the assignment – include your model on one slide – add extra dialogue to the notes section. Also add the references to your final slide. Here are some tips:
Organize your PowerPoint
When previewing your presentation, pay attention to:
- Text on each slide (the less text the better)
- Graphics – they are okay but size them appropriately – don’t let the graphics take over the presentation
- Clarity of ideas and logical organization
- Font and format consistency
- Flow – from beginning to end
- Grammar, spelling, and punctuation -check and double check
