Title: My OD Intervention Project—Task 2
This course has major assignments that will be due in Weeks 3 and 5. It will take more than a week’s effort to adequately complete them. Plan time to start the research and other work for those assignments earlier than the week in which they are due.
Last week, you selected an organization for your project and wrote a report including the name of the organization (may be disguised) and the problem(s) the organization is facing.
Prepare a report indicating the entry process for Walmart. In your report, address the following prompts:
- When you enter the organization as an external consultant, justify whether you will use a problem-oriented or a development-oriented diagnosis for this project.
- Justify how you will determine the organization’s readiness for change.
- On the basis of your chosen diagnosis approach from the first bullet point, assess the organizational issue that is the target for change. Be sure to focus on root causes and not just symptoms. What will be the appropriate organizational level to initiate the change? (State the real issue for a real organization and create a realistic issue for a hypothetical one.)
- Propose when you will give the organization feedback about the change you implement. How will you include feedback about how well the change is working in your action plan? What will that feedback be? Will you develop a survey to assess the effectiveness of the change, or will you use company reports that already exist or may need to be altered to gather pertinent information?
- Present a 3- page paper
