The focus of the seminar paper will be to explain barriers to change and the influence it has on the decision making of leaders in the chosen organization. This will include the use of a ‘force field analysis’ to analyse the forces influencing change.

Your seminar paper should be written in report format and cover/consider the following: 1. Application of force field analysis to determine opposition and support for change. 2. Use of force field analysis to make valid recommendations for meeting the organisation’s objectives. 3. An explanation of the different barriers to change and how they influenced decision making and leadership. 4. How was change accomplished and how successful was it? 5. Advantages and disadvantages of different leadership approaches to dealing with change, illustrated by application to a range of examples. 6.
