International Journal of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine , 2 (3-4), 112-116. Hi Mariela, I enjoyed reading your discussion post. You are correct organizational change is an ongoing process, and most organizations will experience change voluntarily or by force. The information you provide regarding organizations and individual level of readiness is interesting. Post-hoc analyses indicate that the perceived organizational support (POS) trust relationship is nonlinear. The connection is attenuated at higher levels of POS, and reveal a nonlinear indirect effect on change readiness (Gigliotti, Vardaman, Marshall & Gonzalez, 2019). Organizational readiness is a state comprised of mindsets, leadership strategies, and environmental factors within a business or organization. Mindsets, leadership strategies, and environmental factors make or break the chances for success when it comes to implementing a change. It has been suggested that organizations could improve the likelihood of bringing about change by supporting employees before change initiatives are introduced (Gigliotti, Vardaman, Marshall & Gonzalez, 2019). But this support could bring very high levels of support may yield diminishing returns (Gigliotti, Vardaman, Marshall & Gonzalez, 2019). Gigliotti, R., Vardaman, J., Marshall, D. R., & Gonzalez, K. (2019). The role of perceived organizational support in individual change readiness. Journal of Change Management , 19 (2), 86-100. 1 posts Investing Time Wisely - Class, Please Read Class, A good phrase that makes great sense for all doctoral learners is, "hustle while your wait." This is a great mantra for doctoral learners. I would like to add my thoughts regarding the ways learners can hustle while they wait as it is imperative that doctoral learners complete their dissertations. Doctoral learners may make straight As in all of their courses; however, if they do not complete the dissertation they will not earn their doctoral degree. Therefore, I want to provide the following recommendations. 1. Begin reading literature in the area of interest from the beginning of the doctoral program. Begin reading broadly and as you become more familiar with the current research you will be able to identify gaps in research and narrow the topic. Do not wait until you are in your dissertation courses to begin working on your dissertation. Start today!
2. In most doctoral courses, learners have 3 or 4 assignments due during an 8 week course. My question is - what are you doing with the remaining 4 or 5 weeks during the course? You should hustle while you wait. That is, read, read, and read with regard to your research topic.
