Change Implementation And Management Plan

It is one of the most cliché of clichés, but it nevertheless rings true: The only constant is change. As a nursing professional, you are no doubt aware that success in the healthcare field requires the ability to adapt to change, as the pace of change in healthcare may be without rival.

As a professional, you will be called upon to share expertise, inform, educate, and advocate. Your efforts in these areas can help lead others through change. In this Assignment, you will propose a change within your organization and present a comprehensive plan to implement the change you propose.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources and identify one change that you      believe is called for in your organization/workplace.
    • This may be a change       necessary to effectively address one or more of the issues you addressed       in the Workplace Environment Assessment you submitted in Module 4.
    • It may also be a change in       response to something not addressed in your previous efforts. It may be       beneficial to discuss your ideas with your organizational leadership       and/or colleagues to help identify and vet these ideas.
  • Reflect on how you might implement this change and how      you might communicate this change to organizational leadership.

The Assignment (5-6-minute narrated PowerPoint presentation):

Change Implementation and Management Plan

Create a narrated PowerPoint presentation of 5 or 6 slides with video that presents a comprehensive plan to implement the change you propose.

Your narrated presentation should be 5–6 minutes in length.

Your Change Implementation and Management Plan should include the following:

  • An executive summary of the issues that are currently      affecting your organization/workplace (This can include the work you      completed in your Workplace Environment Assessment previously submitted,      if relevant.)
  • A description of the change being proposed
  • Justifications for the change, including why addressing      it will have a positive impact on your organization/workplace
  • Details about the type and scope of the proposed change
  • Identification of the stakeholders impacted by the      change
  • Identification of a change management team (by      title/role)
  • A plan for communicating the change you propose
  • A description of risk mitigation plans you would      recommend to address the risks anticipated by the change you propose
