consistency over time is critical. Frequent changes in structure, processes, or leadership behaviour will quickly breed employee cynicism. Step 4: Assess Feasibility At this point you have made your best estimate of the changes that would be required in our firm’s structure, management processes, and leadership behaviour to implement the strategic proposal that you are examining. Two questions remain: (1) Can these changes be made in the required time frame? (2) Will they produce the desired result? Summary In this chapter we discussed the penultimate step of the Diamond-E analysis, which is to decide if the strategic proposals that looked attractive during your environment, resource, and management preferences analyses could be implemented in the necessary time frame. This analysis involves identifying the organizational changes that would be necessary in the firm 's structure, management processes, and leadership behaviour to develop the capabilities you will need to support the new strategy. You must then make a crucial judgment regarding how likely it is that the proposed changes would have the desired result, and could be implemented in the given time frame. This assessment gives you a basis on which to weigh the risks against the benefits of the proposal. If you are working through the Diamond-E analysis in the order that we have suggested, you may now have several attractive strategic proposals that have made it all the way through your analysis.

    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.
