Part 1

Stakeholder Analysis

For this discussion, use the two frameworks presented in this unit’s studies and construct a stakeholder analysis for a current or proposed change initiative in your organization. Be sure to include the key components of the stakeholder analysis and name the various types of resistance you anticipate encountering. Then, discuss how using such a process can benefit the leading of change within the political frame of the organization. 

Part 2

Force Field Analysis

Using the change initiative you discussed in the previous discussion, Stakeholder Analysis, or a similar change initiative, complete the force field analysis template in the Resources to include driving forces as well as restraining and resisting forces. Respond to the following:

  • How can you disrupt the equilibrium to facilitate movement from the current to desired state?
  • What are the benefits or drawbacks you see in using such a process?
