This assignment focuses on change and the implementation of a decision. This project allows students to demonstrate what they have learned in weeks 6-8 by applying the course material to a business decision. Students will evaluate the interaction with stakeholders, management of decision consequences and change in implementing a decision. Students should review all learning activities and assignments to ensure an understanding of key concepts.
The purpose of this assignment is to have the student demonstrate how implementation of a decision involves change within an organization.
You are the CEO of SunPower, Inc. The job of implementing the Board of Directors’ decision to move the company to New Mexico has been delegated to you. Before anything can be done in carrying out the decision, the consequences of implementing the decision must be evaluated. Stakeholders are vital to the organization and it is necessary to consider how the decision will impact them. Also, the decision will impact the business concern so be sure to consider all aspects of how the decision will impact the business.
Then create a plan that will address the changes that will occur as a result of the decision’s implementation. The reasons for the choices you have made in the plan should take into account the material discussed in class and focus on communicating and creating change.
Step 1: Review “How to Analyze a Case Study” under Week 4 Content.
Step 2: Create a Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) document that is double-spaced, 12-point font. The final product will be between 5-6 pages in length excluding the title page and the reference page.
Step 3: Review the grading rubric for the assignment.
Step 4: Follow this format:
•Title page with title, your name, the course, the instructor’s name;
•Introduction paragraph in which the decision process is described and its significance in business. The introductory paragraph is the first paragraph of the paper but is typically written after writing the body of the paper (Questions students responded to above). View this website to learn how to write an introductory paragraph: https://www.writing.ucsb.edu/faculty/donelan/intro.html
•Summary paragraph. A summary paragraph restates the main idea(s) of the essay. Make sure to leave a reader with a sense that the essay is complete. The summary paragraph is the last paragraph of a paper.
Step 5: In writing a case study, the writing is in the third person. What this means is that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (second person writing).

Step 6: In writing this assignment, students are asked to support the reasoning using in-text citations and a reference list. A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa. View the sample APA paper under Week 1 content.
Step 7: In writing this assignment, students are expected to paraphrase and not use direct quotes. Learn to paraphrase by reviewing this link: https://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/QPA_paraphrase2.html
Step 8: Read critically and analyze the scenario provided under Week 8 Content.
Step 9: Write down or highlight key facts from the scenario. Consider making an outline to capture key points in the paper.
Step 10: In your paper, respond to the following elements:
•Identify and discuss consequences to stakeholders and the business concern that will be impacted by implementing the decision;
•Develop a plan for implementation that addresses the change.
•Use a model of change as part of the Implementation Plan
