Task description & requirements

Preliminary preparation:

  1. Select any company involved in the Transport and Logistics industry, preferably your own
    organisation or one you are familiar with upon which to base your answer. It can be the
    same organisation that you used for Assignment 2. As the nature of the information may
    be industry sensitive you can be assured of our care to maintain confidentiality.
  2. Should you select the same organisation as for Assignment 2 you will still need to provide
    the organisational information in this assignment even though you have provided it
    previously. You must clearly identify the company, providing the full and real name of the
    organisation in your answer.
  3. Provide a brief description of the company, the nature of the business and the approximate
    number of persons employed by the company. Include an organisational chart if available
    (please do not spend time reproducing the chart – a scanned copy or one from the website
    included as an Appendix is acceptable). This section should not be calculated in your word
    count as it provides the assessor with background information.

  1. Should you not have a suitable organisation upon which to base your answer please
    contact the Unit Lecturer.
  2. Identify a situation in your organisation, department or work group where you would like
    to make a change. You are encouraged to contact the Unit Lecturer to discuss your topic
    choice before starting the assignment.

Assignment tasks:

  1. Identify clearly and specifically the change that you wish to introduce, explaining why it is
    needed.
    [5 Marks]
  2. Provide a brief analysis of the current organisational conditions including but not limited to
    the following areas of interest:

    •  Impact on culture
    •  Likely resistance
    •  The pressure for change
    •  The stakeholders involved and their likely reactions
    •  Impact on motivation and use of teams
      [10 Marks]
  3. On the basis of your analysis, provide recommendations for the implementation of the
    change. Your answer must address strategies and leadership matters to overcome
    resistance to change and to encourage engagement throughout the change process.
    [10 Marks]

Required (supporting your response/answer):

Throughout your answer use examples, either real or hypothetical to illustrate your
understanding. If you are or have been employed in a suitable organisation, you are
encouraged to use your work situation where appropriate to explain the ideas.

Primary resources and readings provided in the study guide or ones you have independently
sourced must be accessed to support your position.

See the Essay/report assessment criteria sheet on the following page for information about the
criteria and the standards by which your work will be judged.
