Stakeholder Analysis And Findings

Stakeholder Analysis And Findings

Prepare a 2-3 page report that explains the stakeholder analysis, illustrates a change diagram or model, analyzes the organization culture and climate for change, and assesses the organization’s readiness for change.


Team learning and how it can contribute to a team functioning in alignment and as a whole enterprise is a key concept in change management. Team learning helps a team sustain and reinforce its learning and increases the capacity to act synergistically and master how to learn.

Learning teams must understand how to skillfully dialogue, increasing their ability to problem solve, create new knowledge, deliberate, and build relationships with other teams and customers. Learning teams develop ground rules for truth-telling, time usage, decision-making processes, and domains, and to create a safe conversational environment that allows a team to take risks, make mistakes, forgive, and recover.


The purpose of this assessment is to conduct discovery to understand the stakeholders and the organization and identify themes from your discovery activities. You will utilize methodologies from your selected change model to complete discovery.


Because this assessment is dependent on the information you gather through stakeholder analysis and examination of artifacts, you should schedule time with your contact person at the client organization. Explain the activities and tasks with which you will be engaging and make the necessary arrangements. You may wish to refer to these readings to help you with this assessment:
