Decision Making & Change
The focus of this assignment is the identification and explanation of leadership issues arising from the organisational global change process. During change, business process reengineering consultants follow a decision making process, especially in complex multinational environments, without taking into consideration the stakeholder’s concerns.
The case: Triumph: Sourcing components from cost-competitive countries Part 1 and 2, (Hayes, J. (2014), The Theory and Practice of Change Management, Palgrave Mc Millan, pp.161-
163) will enable you to analyse and evaluate the need for change using business and leadership theories, concepts and models and to consider implications if change is not administered accordingly and how leaders can take forward change proposals.
This case will provide you with an opportunity to critically discuss the justification of decisions in relation to the soft parameters affecting the success of a change project.
Your task is to complete a report of 2500 words which provides a critical and analytical review and discussion of the leadership and change issues as well as other business issues that should be taken into consideration towards ethical decision making and the implications of change framed by the subject matter and focus of the chosen case.
It is wise for you to establish the key focus of your discussion, drawing on material not only from the case itself but also from other published sources such as company reports, quality newspaper articles, academic journals and texts. The key areas for consideration in your report are as follows: To provide an overview of the industry under consideration in your chosen case.

concepts, should be adopted?
The implications to the organisation or industry of maintaining the status-quo.
The leadership and vision needed for successful change in the future.
