  • Overview

    Write 10–15 pages in which you consolidate your experiences in facilitating team-learning sessions into a final analysis. Incorporate your learning on change management; facilitating change; the dynamics of change; the importance of stakeholder participation; and the use of language, trust building, and fear containment in team development.

  • Note: You will need to complete Assessments 1 and 3 before completing this assessment.

  • Context

    The Resources in this assessment reference traditional organizational development theory, the elements of large-scale change, some applicable change models, and the related systemic thinking. A powerful force for movement is the idea that a community needs to become dissatisfied with its current state, visualize a preferred future, and initiate first steps to overcome the resistance to change.

  • Questions to Consider

    To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.

    • Think about a difficult change process that you have experienced: a downsizing, an acquisition, an introduction of new technology, the replacement and introduction of a new leader, being put in a new group, the creation of a new enterprise, and so on. Or think of a personal change, such as a change in a relationship or a new job. Consider how the DVFR factors (dissatisfaction, vision, first steps, and resistance) helped create change. What factors that made the change more difficult may have been involved? What would have been needed to overcome the missing elements?
    • At the completion of this assessment, consider what you have learned about change management and about yourself as a team facilitator.
