In your final project, you will be developing a change plan for the “Alaska Airlines: Navigating Change” case study. In order to begin developing this change plan, you will need to analyze the case study and diagnose the problem. In this activity, your instructor will assign you to a group with five of your peers, and each group will be assigned its own discussion forum. Each member of the group will be given one of the six parts for the Analysis and Diagnosis section of the final project case study (problem, impact, organizational needs, variables, underlying causes, and gaps).
You are to become an expert on your piece of the puzzle and should post your answer (along with the prompt your instructor gives you) so the rest of the class can benefit from your piece of the analysis. You should then read all of your assigned group members’ initial posts in order to gain a better understanding of the case study and to compare it with your own understanding. You will be ultimately responsible for understanding all the different parts of the analysis and diagnosis for the final project (Section I, A–F), but this collaboration from your peers will help you get started. Respond to at least two of your peers with any questions you have about their analysis and diagnosis, and compare their answer to your own understanding of the case.
