Identify the two, different, theoretical perspectives (ontologies or world-views) used in this subject, which underpin how we understand organisational change, and explain and critically discuss their key ideas and features, drawing from the topic materials (overview, textbook, the required academic readings) provided and from your wider reading. Go on to write two different definitions of organisational change, one based upon the first theoretical perspective (ontology) discussed above, and the second based on the other theoretical perspective (ontology) discusssed above . Briefly explain the link between each definition and its underlying theoretical perspective. 


Using an organisation you are familiar with (you may use information in the public domain, i.e. from organisational websites and other forms of media to assist you):

a) Briefly introduce the organisation

b) Identify and describe a change that is happening, or has previously happened, within it (including what the change is, how it is implemented, who the change agent'/s are, who is involved and how, and how employees are engaged and affected).

c) Go on to explain how your definitions (from Question 1 above) related to the change occurring in this organisation. (c.650 words in total).


a) Draw up a SWOT analysis, as a table, to assess what has caused the need for the organisational change which you identified in question 2 above, then explain, discuss and integrate your analysis, including a conclusion that summarise the current state of the business and connects this to why the change was (or is being) implemented.

b) Then, in your own words, (but using references to support you) identify and critically evaluate the benefits and drawbacks (from both the objectivist and social constructionist perspectives) of using business SWOT analyses in general to determine the need for organisations to change.

c). The SWOT analysis - external (PESTEL) factors and the internal environment (structure, management, finance, human resources, processes and procedures and physical resources) rationalist perspective is likely to understand the SWOT as providing the organisation with clear reasons for change  social constructionist perspective is likely to understand SWOT as a partial picture of the situation, based on imprecise data disregards the human element


Using the subject materials (overview, textbook, required readings, online material), as well as your wider reading, identify, explain and critically assess the key conceptualisations of role of the change agent, and then apply this analysis to the change in organisation described above.

‘change agent’ is a relatively new role whose purpose is to ‘develop climate for planned change by overcoming resistance and rallying forces for positive growth’ 
Jabri  (2012): “A change agent is a person who initiates, stimulates, or facilitates a change programme” through being “helpful” (p. 52).


Using the subject materials (topic overview, textbook, relevant required readings) as well as your wider reading, define and critically discuss both problem-centric and dialogic approaches to change. Briefly identify which theoretical ontology of organisational change (which you discussed in question 1) underpins each. Critically assess the benefits and drawbacks of each of these approaches to change management. Go on to identify which of these approaches you would prefer to use to manage the change you identified in 2a and explain why
