It is often difficult to utilize sound reasoning and theoretical principles in stressful situations. In this assignment, you will develop a change plan for the corporate headquarters of a large long-term-care organization. You will be moving from a traditional vertical (hierarchal) design to organizational structure (horizontal) to adapt to the rapid changes in consumer needs. This will also make several positions unnecessary.
What are the advantages of this change, and what are the disadvantages?
Define what steps you could take to overcome resistance to this change.
In what ways can you identify individuals for promotion in this new structure?
Develop a plan (of at least 1 page) for the reduction in force (RIF), also known as a layoff, that must occur after the organization’s structural change. How will you decide which jobs will have to be eliminated, who will be in on the decision-making process, and how will you notify employees about your decisions? Remember that horizontal organizations require less middle management, not just fewer workers.
Your paper should comprise a title page, at least 4 pages of information, and a reference page with at least three professional sources other than your textbook.
