Strategies For Engagement

Assignment 2: Strategies for Engagement

As noted in Block (2011), engagement in ongoing change is more effective than implementation of one initiative or project. To begin to implement ongoing change, the consultant can employ some strategies to help the client make fundamental changes to his or her organization. Block (2011) discusses eight strategies to foster engagement with the client to produce lasting change. On the basis of these eight strategies, respond to the following:

  1. Describe the eight strategies for engagement, as detailed in Block (2011).
  2. Identify which of these eight strategies you think would be most important and effective in assisting the client with his or her change process.
  3. Beyond Block’s (2011) eight strategies, explain other strategies you think would be effective in implementing organizational change.
  4. Analyze challenges you think a consultant might face during the implementation phase of a project.

Your final deliverable will be a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document. You should utilize two to three scholarly sources in your research. Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
