In this paper, you will reflect on and respond to
The Change Monster(Jeanie Daniel Duck) by way of a book review built around the following four sections:
- Summary: Summarize the assigned book chapters concisely in 700-750 words. Demonstrate that you fully understand the reading by providing a clear and straightforward summary. The summary is not a commentary or listing of topics, but rather an abbreviated synopsis of the book. Cite the book in your papers (at least one per paragraph) and include page numbers for direct quotations.
- Concrete Responses: In at least 250 words, write about a personal change episode, experience that this book triggered in your memory. Relate your story in first person, describing action and quoting exact words you remember hearing or saying. You will remember almost nothing you have read unless you make this critical, personal connection.
- Reflection: What new questions about change management arise as a consequence of reviewing the text. Challenge the author by asking better questions than he/she did. Begin with questions like, “What troubles me about this book?” Discuss the positives and negatives of the book. Limit this section to 250-300 words.
- Action: What are you going to do about it? Develop action steps based on core points of the book. This section must be a description of how main ideas will affect your understanding of change management and your own development in managing change. Provide what professional changes you will implement. Be precise in summarizing your action steps. Limit these comments to 150 words.
The paper must adhere to APA standards including a Reference page on which you provide the complete reference information for cited sources.
Please note: Your grade on the book review depends on the manner in which you address each of these four dimensions in response to your readings. The final paper must be double-spaced and adhere to the lengths as noted above (not including the Title page and Reference page). Use quotes strategically and sparingly.
