Devry HRM587 week 1 discussions

Q1Chapter 1 of your textbook includes, on page 9, Table 1.1, “Managing Change: Some
Lessons from the Four Stories.” Review the four “lessons” (bullet
points) on the table, and think about what some of the key “learning points”
you gleaned about change from these stories. Then, do one of two things:
1. Post the top three
learning points you gleaned from the stories, and include how the stories for
change helped you learn these points, or
2. Research one of the four
companies and see how or if that company has since changed (yet more) since the
time of the book’s publication. How did that recent change fit with or not fit
in with the “lessons” that the textbook mentions the company “learned” from
their original set of changes? Explain what you find (bring the URL of the
research/article you used to help you).
Your
instructor will follow up with you with additional questions throughout the
week to push the learning further. Feel free to discuss your classmates’
findings and thoughts on these questions with each other as well.
Q2Organizations
change due to many different pressures. In your lecture for Week 1, as well as
your reading in Chapter 3, you are introduced to many of these pressures. Think
about a time at work, at school, or at home, when you have been subjected to
similar pressures (this is “your” example). Did that pressure make you
change or “dig in your heels” and refuse to change? What does that say about
pressures for change? Does it always lead to change?

Provide your example in your first post, and if you can, explain how the
theories on “pressures for change” help explain why you were or weren’t
actually pressured to change in your example. Please also discuss your
classmates’ examples with them. In follow-up posts, talk about how these
pressures did or didn’t cause a company to change, to their benefit or
detriment.

Your instructor will come in with additional questions and thoughts based on
your comments and the pressures for change, and during the week, your main
focus will be on “why companies change.” Enjoy the discussions!
