Readiness and Stakeholder Analysis

Readiness and Stakeholder Analysis

Part 1:  Based on your problem and plan identified in Week One, complete the readiness rubrics for the leader (yourself), the participants, and the organization.  You may complete the participant and organizational rubrics yourself (based on your perceptions) or work with colleagues in your organization to complete them.  For each rubric, report the sub-scores for experience, skills, doing what it takes, values, and the overall readiness score.  Report these scores in a narrative description. Discuss the high and low readiness areas of each.  Discuss potential strategies you might use based on the strengths and needs of each (the leader, the participants, and the organization).  This section of the paper should be about two pages.

Part 2:  Based on your proposed problem from Week One, create a chart similar to the one below to identify at least five stakeholders involved in or impacted by the change and determine the following:

  1. Potential gains
  2. Possible losses 
  3. Identify if they are a supporter or opponent of the change 
  4. Discuss strategies for engaging the stakeholder in the change in a positive way 
  5. Any other considerations for the stakeholder group (optional)

This section of your paper should be one- to two- pages.

Your completed paper should be three- to four- pages and should use APA format for the paper and for all citations and references.  Include an introduction and conclusion paragraph.  Use at least two sources beyond the textbook.
