Student Name Taylor Platon Managing Transitions - Chapters 7 1) Define the rising tide of change. The rising tide of change is the human capacity, over time, to adjust to new and higher levels of change. 2) Define the concept of using the worst-case scenario. Worst-case scenario involves making an alternative plan just in case something unexpected happens. 3) What does your author mean by continually clarifying the purpose and building trust? Continually clarifying the purpose means reminding people the main goal and end purpose of the transition, so it is clear what their efforts are working towards. This needs to be done throughout the process so you emphasize the importance. Building trust is important because people will trust their manager and therefore take on a change even if it scares them. 4) Define what your author means by old baggage. Old baggage can be past situations or promises that were not handled or kept, therefore those issues and concerns are brought up during the new change. 5) Describe what your author does when he holds workshops to increase Organizations Transition Worthiness? The author has people arrange themselves by birthday, and then has them divide into small groups. He does this to allow people to take note of how they are going through transition, individually and the group as a whole.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
