Task

Why is resistance to
change frequently demonised as a problem that must be managed? What are the
ethical implications of this and how else can resistance be understood?

You may use examples from your own
organisation to illustrate your essay.

  1. Drawing on your subject material and wider reading from the
    academic literature, identify and examine why change is resisted, and why
    resistance is problematical as something to be managed.
  2. From a critical perspective, examine the relationship between power
    and resistance in the context of organisational change.
  3. Analyse the ethics of the managerial and of resistant positions.
  4. Assess the implications of the managerial and of resistant
    positions for achieving an effective change management programme.
  5. Draw conclusions that summarise your work and address the essay
    question.

You must follow an essay structure that is
at a minimum an introduction; a main body that outlines the argument, analyses
the material you have researched and assesses this according to the guidelines
above, and a conclusion. Your writing style must follow professional literacy:
Citations and a final reference list that follows the APA 6 guidelines accurately;
the quality of writing and presentation: use of topic and linking sentences,
and of connected paragraphs; accurate mechanics (spelling, grammar, punctuation
etc.); use respectful language to discuss all people; avoid emotive language;
employ inclusive, non-sexist language; not opinionated, i.e. support
observations with evidence. A minimum of thirteen appropriate
citations/references should be used.
