Comprehensive Learning Assessment (CLA 1) In Week 4 students are to write a 6-8 page minimum APA formatted paper in response to a case study or similar assignment provided by the professor. Students must reference at least 8 sources beyond the course materials. Students’ answers are to be clear, well- organized, and specific. Provide a concise, cogent argument and include details to support your response. CLA 1 focuses on assessing course foundations and the student’s ability to define and understand its main concepts.

This CLA1 requires that you define what are the systems of resistance, and provide some

understanding by answering the following questions:

1. What symptoms of resistance to change have you experienced? Have you experienced

both active and passive forms? Have you experienced them as a resistor yourself (as a

recipient of change)? Have you experienced them as someone responsible for the

management of change (as an initiator of change)?

2. Which of the various reasons for resisting change do you believe to be the most

common? What are your “top three” in this regard?

3. Which of the various reasons for resisting change do you believe to be the most difficult

to deal with (as a manager)? What are your “top three” in this regard?

4. When senior managers resist change at the strategic level, they are in a position to

cause more damage than employees resisting changes at the operational level. Have

you worked in a company where you believe that management resistance to change

may have existed? As a manager yourself, what would you try to do to prevent this from

happening?

5. Which approach to the management of resistance attracts you? What is the reason for

your choice? For example, is it because you think it to be the most effective or does it

also relate to a view that you have about how people should be managed?
