The change may be a merger, buyout, downsizing, expansion, new marketing strategy, culture change within the company, change in CEO, or any other type of change.

  • Describe the company’s history and identify the change.
  • Select the type of change – adaptive, innovative – or radically innovative, and explain your rational for your selection.
  • Describe if the change is reactive or proactive.
