Analyse The Organisation To Determine Change Requirements

Organisational analysis

In summary, this assessment task requires you to analyse information about the
organisation and the industry that you work in to determine any opportunities for change for the organisation. You will need to consult with stakeholders, including management to identify and prioritise opportunities for change.

If you are currently in the workplace you will need to collect the evidence for each part of the assessment task from your workplace. If you are not working, you will need to collaborate with your workplace coach to access all relevant workplace documentation to complete each aspect of this assessment task.

Those students not working will need to work in conjunction with your workplace coach to analyse the internal and external environment in their coach’s workplace to assist you to provide evidence of having completed this task. You will need to read all parts of the assessment and address all aspects of the task to be deemed competent.
Carefully read all parts of the assessment and address all aspects of the task. All of
the criteria must be completed for you to be deemed competent in this task. Ensure that your answers are typed and clearly labelled.

This task requires you to conduct an analysis of your organisation’s/your workplace coach’s organisations internal and external environment to determine where change needs to be made. If the organisation is in the process of planning a change to organisational processes then you may use this change to base your assessment on.
As part of your analysis you will need to:

A.    Conduct an analysis of your organisation’s/your workplace coach’s organisations internal environment through review of the organisation’s business objectives, vision statement, policies and procedures, complaints and continuous improvement feedback, organisational chart, and project/ risk management documentation. Provide a list of the documentation that you review as part of the analysis of the organisation’s internal environment.

B.    Conduct an analysis of your organisation’s/your workplace coach’s organisations external environment to identify any potential impacts on the organisation’s current or future strategic objectives based on trends and issues that exist in your industry at this time (use the PEST analysis tool discussed in the learner guide to assist with conducting this external analysis). Document the findings of your PEST analysis as evidence of having completed this part of the task.
C.    Conduct a SWOT analysis to identify your organisation’s/your workplace coach’s organisations strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats and document a summary of your findings for each part of the SWOT.

D.    Based on your overall analysis from tasks A, B & C:

• List of a minimum of three changes that can be made to the business to meet the
organisation’s future objectives
• Prioritise the list from most important to least important based upon consultation with at
least two managers (one of these managers can be your workplace coach for students not working) within the organisation
• Why the list was prioritised in that order
• Identify who you consulted and why

E.    Select one of the changes from your list and analyse how this change will impact upon your organisation’s/your workplace coach’s organisation. To assist you to determine what kind of impact this change might have, conduct the following three types of analysis as part of your evidence of completing this task:

• A cost-benefit analysis of this change (including potential monetary costs of the change or resources to be purchased for the change to be implemented). You can conduct your cost-benefit analysis according to the formula used in the unit BSBMGT608 or use another cost-benefit analysis tool
• A risk analysis of this change (this can include a copy of the risk assessment you conducted as part of the risk assessment)
• A gap analysis of the organisation’s current position versus its ideal position
• Identify three potential barriers to the change being implemented and identify a strategy to address each of the barriers you have identified.
