Assignment 1: Discussion—The Four-Frame Approach Applied to Change Management

Change efforts often fail because change agents operate with a limited perspective. They use only one or two lenses to conceive projects and then misread or entirely miss unanticipated consequences of their actions. By using an innovative approach where you reframe organizational change as a four-dimensional process, success is more likely to happen during a change.

Using the Argosy University online library resources, locate at least three different scholarly sources on change management. Discuss the barriers to change and the essential change strategies for each one of the four frames.

Complete the following:

  • Analyze the use of the four-frame approach for the implementation of change in the workplace.
  • Examine and explain possible barriers to be faced in a change process to be implemented in your workplace or an organization that you know well.
  • Include perspectives about change management strategies using each one of the four frames discussed in this module.
  • Support your points of view with clear change examples documented in the current literature.
  • Be sure to cite your sources.

Write your initial response in a minimum of 300 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

By  Saturday, October 22, 2016, post your responses to the appropriate  Discussion Area. Through  Wednesday, October 26, 2016, review and comment on at least two of your peers’ responses.

Do the following when responding to your peers:

  • Read all the posts from your peers.
  • Respond to feedback on your posting and provide feedback to other students on their ideas.
  • Provide substantive comments by contributing new, relevant information or quotes from course reading, Web sites, or other sources; building on the remarks or questions of others; or sharing practical examples of key concepts from your experiences, professional or personal.
  • Make sure your writing is clear, concise, and organized; demonstrates ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and displays accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
