Week 8 Discussion 1
Organizational Change
This week concludes with organizational change. As you continue to move forward, both personally and professionally, you will be faced with change. This week you will have the opportunity to analyze what others are doing to embrace change.
The word change often tends to send chills down the spine of some individuals, however, it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, as a leader, your goal is to help your employees to embrace change.
As you know, change is inevitable. In today’s business world it almost appears as if it’s constant. Technology has created a rapid pace and it can be a challenge to keep up from time to time. But, understanding why change occurs and how to eliminate fear from individuals can be a valuable tool in your personal success as well as helping your organization to continue to thrive.
This week you have an important week ahead with your final project. Change is a vital step in this project as you are tasked with the project of developing a strategic plan for improving an organization of your choice. This will likely involve change for the organization as the plan is implemented.

For discussion 1 of week 8. I will like to talk about one company that I worked for a while. The company is call Adventure Bounce, It sell bouncy house. it was a small company. Even if it was a start up company, the owner was open to ideas and strategies to make the company better and grow the company. It had great ethics, social responsibility, and outstanding customer service. The company started in one warehouse by the time I left the company it took over four warehouses that were in the same commercial space. It always took care of the employees because the owner understood that human capital can make or break the company.

For this final project assignment, I chose my very first job, Andres Pizza, a local mom/pop pizza place in El Paso, TX. As for any local mom/pop establishment, competing and having to deal with national chains is extremely hard and difficult, especially in the food industry. What sets Andres Pizza aside from any other pizza establishment is the addition of other menu options that the national chains such as Pizza Hut and Dominos do not have. I have attached my presentation for review and am welcomed to suggestions, recommendations, and criticism as well. As this is our last week, I wish the best for everyone on their future endeavors and congratulations on getting your Masters Degree!
