Change Model Assignment
Imagine that you are an executive for XYZ, Inc., a
high-end retail chain that sells luxury watches, jewelry, and hand
bags. You’ve just been put in charge of the company’s first
international expansion, opening a store in Shanghai, China. This will
be a short-term, small-scale change for the organization. After one
year, you will be expected to begin opening additional stores in Brazil,
Russia, India, and China (also known as the B.R.I.C. countries). This
will be a long-term, large-scale change.
In 3 - 5 pages, explain which change model you would
follow for the short-term change and which you would follow for the
long-term change. Provide rationale for your decision and discuss the
effects that these changes would have on the employees, managers, and
executives within the organization. Include at least three references
and follow standard APA formatting for your paper.
