Why is it that people issues can affect whether change will succeed or fail?
Managers need to attend to people issues throughout the whole change process. Yet a common mistake many managers make is to treat the need for change and what needs to be changed as a technical activity with no reference to the people issues.
Consider an organisational change that you have recently experienced or are currently experiencing. Write a report that considers the potential people issue pressures that managers face to participate in organisational change. Your report must include two (2) of the following key themes that is most relevant to your case:
1. Politics and power
3. Communicating change and
4. Motivating others.

Students will be assessed against the following criteria:
1. Content (35%)
• Clear understanding of the key issues concerned.
• Originality of ideas and expression.
• Evidence of reading and research using at least 10 peer-reviewed (refereed journal articles). It is expected that you will read widely to identify a range of different positions, and theoretical approaches relevant to the question.
• Report structure observed and conforms to required format.
2. Analysis (45%)
• Applications of theories/concepts – implications are drawn and recommendations are made.
• Careful consideration and assessment of the supporting evidence.
• Analysis is specific – avoids sweeping generalisations or points that are difficult to support with specific evidence.
3. Structure and style (includes style standards and referencing conventions) (20%)
• Integrating evidence (paraphrasing, synthesising and quotations).
• Clear, coherent writing style.
• Logical structure and organisation.
• Referencing follows Harvard SCU style for each information source and integrating quotations.
• Within 10% (+/-) of the word limit.
