THE IMPORTANCE OF ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE 2 It is very important to understand Organizational Change for many reasons. In relation to my future, I plan on attending graduate school, and then moving on to work in my own private practice as a licensed mental health counselor. I will need to be prepared for Organizational Change in both of these environments. I found three articles that discuss Organizational Change and its importance. The first is by Dr. Carter McNamara, and he defines Organizational Change and stresses its relevance for leaders and managers. Another is by Leigh Richards which discusses the many reasons why change in an organization is crucial. Finally, there is one by Mark DesJardine, and he discusses his own company’s successful transition, and what he learned along the way. Each of these articles explains why Organizational Change is an integral part of today’s professional world. The first article, titled Organizational Change and Development (Managing Change and Change Management), discusses Organizational Change, and how it is present in all teams and organizations today (McNamara) . McNamara defines Organizational Change as anytime “an organization changes its overall strategy for success, adds or removes a major section or practice, and/or wants to change the very nature by which it operates .

    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.
