Introduction
This unit is about identifying and developing change strategies to meet organisational objectives.

 

Learning Outcomes
The Learner will:-
1. Understand how to apply solutions to organisational change
2. Understand how to develop a change strategy using implementation models
3. Understand how to analyse an organisational response to change
4. Be able to evaluate the impact of change strategies

 

Task 1 Assessment Criteria Pass/Refer Comments
Identify at least three models or
frameworks that can be used to
address organisational change.
Critically evaluate how these change
models can be used to help meet
organisational objectives and
resolve change challenges.
By referring to an example of a
situation where your organisation
has undergone change, identify the
criteria that you would use to select
the most appropriate change
implementation model for this
particular scenario.
Identify and justify the change
solutions for this scenario that help
achieve organisational objectives.
Apply a range of creative problem
solving techniques can be used to
address change challenges.
Guideline word count: 1,300 – 1,500
words
A.C. 1.1 – Identify a
range of
organisational change,
models or frameworks
PASS An appropriate range of models is
identified and discussed in some detail
A.C. 2.1 – Evaluate a
range of change
implementation
models
REFER The Marker is unable to find the
response to this AC where a range of
implementation models is explicitly
evaluated.
A.C. 2.2 – Identify the
criteria to select a
change
implementation model
that supports
organisational change
REFER The Marker is unable to locate the
response to this AC. An explicit
response that identifies specific
selection criteria for a model to support
organisational change is required.
A.C.1.2 – Apply a
range of creative
problem solving
techniques to address
change challenges
REFER The Marker is unable to locate the
response to this AC. A number of
problem solving techniques are identified
but it is not clear how these are
applied
to address change challenges.
A.C. 1.3 – Identify and
justify change
solutions that link to
organisational
strategic plans
REFER The Marker is unable to locate a
response to this AC.

Task 2 Assessment Criteria Pass/Refer Comments
By referring to examples,
demonstrate how analytical tools
can be used to monitor the progress
and effect of change within an
organisation.
Assess monitoring and
measurement techniques in
resolving change challenges.
Analyse key strategies involved in
minimising the adverse effects of
change on the organisation and
recommend one strategy that has
enabled you to resolve a challenging
change issue within your
organisation.
Guideline word count: 850 – 1,000
words
A.C. 3.1 –
Demonstrate the use
of analytical tools to
monitor the progress
and the effect of
change
REFER The Marker is unable to locate a
response to this AC. It may well be
covered somewhere within the
assignment but some clear mapping of
the ACs is required.
A.C. 3.2 – Assess
monitoring and
measurement
techniques to change
within an organisation
REFER As above.
A.C. 3.3 – Analyse
strategies to minimise
adverse effects of
change
REFER As above.

 

Task 3 Assessment Criteria Pass/Refer Comments
By referring to a situation where
change has occurred within your
organisation, identify the processes
used to effectively review the impact
of the change.
Demonstrate how results of the
impact review are analysed and
present the findings of the change
strategies within this scenario in
meeting organisational objectives.
Guideline word count: 850 – 1,000
words
A.C. 4.1 – Identify the
processes to review
the impact of the
change
REFER As above.
A.C. 4.2 – Analyse the
results of the impact
review
REFER As above.
A.C. 4.3 – Present the
findings of the impact
review
REFER As above.

 

This is an exceptionally difficult assignment to mark due to the way it has been structured.
Remember that the ACs must be clearly and fully addressed in order to achieve the Learning
Outcomes for the Unit so they should either be used as sub-headings or some clear mapping
included as to where the response to each AC can be found. You also need to ensure that you
explicitly respond to the instructional verb stated in the AC so that you clearly “identify”,
“evaluate”, “apply”, “assess”, etc., as appropriate. The Bibliography provides evidence of
wider reading but you should always acknowledge the work or ideas of others by references
within the text of your assignment, otherwise there is a danger that you could be accused of
plagiarism. Please do not be disheartened by this feedback as there appears to be some good
work included in your assignment but you need to present it more clearly to reflect the
Assessment Criteria so that the Marker can identify individual responses. Please resubmit
taking these comments into account.
