7. As this week’s material points out, we are living in times of immense change. One of the essential tasks of an organization’s leadership is to lead organizations in a way that ensures that the entire organization is committed to the change and that support mechanisms are in place to sustain change. Research several online industries that are currently stressed by changing marketplaces and demographics: the newspaper and publishing Industries, entertainment media outlets, brick and mortar retail, and even campus bookstores.

1. Choose an organization within one of the industries listed above, or one of your own choosing that is currently impacted by a changing marketplace.

2. How would you apply Kotter’s eights steps toward leading change within that organization?

3. Provide examples of the desired outcomes and support mechanisms you would utilize.

 

Guided Response: Analyze several of your peers’ posts. Let at least two of your peers know how their chosen approach would be useful in your scenario as well. Suggest any approaches you have found that may be helpful in their environment

 

8. Adaptive work is accomplished by finding a solution to seemingly intractable problems facing leaders; the solution is neither technical, nor obvious. As the material illustrates, leaders must motivate organization members to face demanding situations that arise from the organization’s own culture and values. Using the organization you chose within this week’s first discussion, analyze an adaptive challenge facing this organization.

1. Describe the adaptive work that needs to be accomplished.

2. Analyze your approach to resolving the problem. Be certain to include questions that would arise, and what trade-offs may be required in your analysis.

3. Describe the desired outcome.

Guided Response: Analyze several of your peers’ posts. Give advice to at least two of your peers suggesting any approaches you have found that may prove to be helpful in conducting their adaptive work
