Critical Essay 2000 words

Session four of this course discusses nine different change tools. Your task is to choose two, and critically evaluate their usefulness to effect change for BOTH a manufacturing company and a service company. Note: you are NOT to investigate Lewin’s Classical Model.

The available change tools to evaluate are:

  •   Socio-technical system approach
  •   The organisation development school
  •   The learning organisation
  •   Lean production
  •   TQM
  •   Business process re-engineering
  •   Best practice
  •   The high-performance work organisation.
    Your evaluation should resolve the question “Are these change tools appropriate, not appropriate, or partially appropriate to change both a manufacturing company, and a service company?” along with an explanation of how you reached that conclusion.
    Notes:
    For a 2000 word essay such as this, we expect at least 10 peer-reviewed academic journal article references.
