a. “How are Kotter’s eight­stage framework for change and the appreciative inquiry method similar? How are they different? Explain.” Both methods focus on driving organizational change, Kotter’s starts with establishing a sense of urgency, second, a coalition of power is created, third, a vision, and forth leaders communicate the vision and strategy. Fifth, leaders empower employees, and press show them that change is possible, sixth, leaders generate short term wins, seventh, more short term wins are generated, and 8th, the leaders focus on making the changes stick. The AI (appreciative inquiry) seems to be more idea driven, and relies on the individual, not the leader to create and understand the environment, and the common goal. AI also focus’ on more abstract thought, where people are planning, discovering, and then acting, rather than constantly acting and improving. However, they are alike because they both focus on getting a task done, and organizing people to do it.

    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.
