Course Project Expectations
Student is required to do the following:

Applying models and concepts from the course, analyze a significant change initiative you have observed, have been affected by or have had a hand in implementing in your organization. It can be a change that your organization is currently undergoing, or one that has recently been completed. The organization that is in your paper could also be one that you worked for in the past. However, you must know enough about the change to be able to do a comprehensive analysis.
Examples of change you might consider include:
• Restructuring or reorganization
• Downsizing or rapid expansion
• Technical or work process redesign
• Merger or acquisition
• Benchmarking or reengineering
• Implementing new technologies
• Shifting strategy
