In today’s fast-paced and global community, most organizations are faced with constant change. Research contemporary organizations that are currently responding to a significant change within the industry, such as disruptive technology; state, government, or industry regulations; environmental constraints; judicial or legislative rulings; etc.
Choose one organization from your research that has recently responded to major change, or is currently responding to change. Write a paper (1,100 words) discussing how well the organization is responding to the change dynamics. Include the following:
Describe the organization and the change to which it is responding.
Discuss the degree to which the change has been disruptive and how the organization has responded to the dynamics created by this change.
Evaluate the strategies the organization used in its change plan and determine the level of success the organization experienced with the strategies.
Determine the effect the change had on stakeholders, and to what degree stakeholders have resisted. Assess how well stakeholder resistance was addressed.
Evaluate the overall implications the change had on interdepartmental collaboration.
In your opinion, how well did the leaders of the organization respond and prepare for the change? What worked and what did not work with the strategies they implemented?
What modifications would you suggest the leaders of the organization make in order to better address the change dynamics? What additional strategies would you recommend to assist the organization through this change?

Evaluate an ethical or unethical situation involving a business leader in the past few years.

Provide answers to ONE of the following:
Describe a team that you have been on recently. Assess what made it effective or ineffective. Support your views with material on Teams from the textbook.
Evaluate an ethical or unethical situation involving a business leader in the past few years. Explain what made this situation either ethical or unethical. Relate if you would have moved in a different direction.
Recommend steps to expand diversity in your workplace. Justify and support your views with information from the textbook.
Your response should be a minimum of 250 words with two (2) external non-textbook references.
Example :
Class,
I have chosen to discuss an ethical situation involving a business leader for this week’s post. The situation I selected was the 2014 decision by CVS Pharmacy (now CVS Health) President and CEO, Larry Merlo, to discontinue the sale of tobacco products at all of the company’s retail locations. As a brand that markets itself as the “leading health solutions company” (CVS Health, n.d.), CVS made the decision that tobacco products had no place on their store shelves. Despite the $2 billion in annual revenue that CVS received from the sale of tobacco products, Merlo decided that quitting tobacco was aligned with the company’s stated purpose “to help people on their path to better health” (TED, 2015, 6:34).
The actions of Merlo and his top management were both substantive, in demonstrating their commitment to the company’s purpose (even at the expense of revenue), and symbolic, in their modeling the type of behavior that they expect of the organization and its employees. As the first company to take such a sweeping action, many of CVS Health’s competitors thought this move would hurt the company’s bottom line and have little impact on the tobacco usage of CVS Health’s customers. However, research shows that, less than three years after the policy took effect, CVS customers who bought cigarettes exclusively from CVS locations were 38% more likely to quit smoking (Jaspen, 2017).
Senior executives set the tone when it comes to establishing the culture within an organization. Employees observe the decision that leaders make and whether or not their actions align with those decisions. They “learn what is most valued in an organization by watching what attitudes and behaviors leaders pay attention to . . . and whether the leaders’ own behaviors match the espoused values” (Lussier & Achua, 2016, p. 366). Merlo and his team’s decision, to do what they determined to be the ethical thing, certainly demonstrated to the company’s employees that they could “walk the walk.”
Personally, I do not know if I would have gone in the same direction as the top management team at CVS Health. I doubt I would have even thought of the idea of going away from the sale of tobacco products. Even if I had thought of it, I probably would have been among the skeptics that doubted the move would have made any significant impact on tobacco usage. Although, I am confident that Merlo sleeps a little better at night, knowing that his company’s actions are no longer contradictory to their stated purpose.
