Identify a significant change management initiative and critically assess the extent to which it has been successfully managed.
Identify the rationale, objectives, planning activities, implementation strategies and evaluate them against ?best practice?: to what extent could the change be considered as being innovative; did it achieve the anticipated outcomes; were lessons learned; how could the innovative potential have been further enhanced?
You should adopt a case study style: set the scene, detail the history, examine and critique the outcomes, detail the lessons, and then suggest a way forward. You may select an ongoing or historical change, but please ensure you have access to all the relevant information.
