Creative Change and Innovation: Assignment 1 – Guidelines
Assignment 1: Poster Presentation
Students are required to prepare a poster presentation which depicts a change management model. As part of this poster presentation students are also required to demonstrate how the change management model can be applied within a business change project.
There are various models to select from, including those that have been discussed as part of your lectures, which you are welcome to use. Please remember to choose one model only, and apply it in a business context. Your poster should be in an illustrative format.
The remaining content should also cover the following features:
1. The context of the change situation you are applying the model to, with an explanation as to how a change management model can be applied from a business perspective.
2. An evaluation of the impact of change in response to a business issue or external factor, and how it is managed effectively internally in relation to people, processes and other aspects of business.
3. What contributions are made by the person or persons leading the change project. How have they ensured that the business continues to operate effectively.
In each section the use of supporting relevant academic theory is required to underpin your answer.
Professional business presentation, (particularly relevant when designing a poster) and language all contribute to the overall mark. These marks will be incorporated into the marks for each section.
