An understanding of change theory is critical to the success of human and social services professionals. A classic model of change theory consists of three phases: (a) unfreezing, (b) movement, and (c) refreezing (Lewin, 1951). Another model describes the differences between first- and second-order change and how first-order change may continue to perpetuate the very problems human services professionals seek to remedy (Watzlawick, Weakland, & Fisch, 1974). Developmental theory and systems theory may also be relevant to implementing change in human and social services related agencies and organizations.

As you develop your Capstone Project strategic plan, think about the element of change and how change might affect the change processes that will be associated with the agency, organization, or community for your strategic plan. Think of principles from relevant change theories and how you can implement those procedures to manage the individual and organizational change that may come about as a result of the strategic plan. Along with change theory and processes, you also should consider codes of ethics to guide you in addressing these issues.

To prepare:

  • Select a change theory and the related change processes (e.g., force-field analysis, developmental theory, systems theory) that you might apply to address the issues related to the strategic plan for the agency, organization, or community you selected in Week 1 Discussion 2.
  • In addition, consider the ethical challenges that you might encounter and codes of ethics you might apply to address these challenges.

By Day 7

The Assignment (2–3 pages):

  • Briefly describe the issues you anticipate encountering in your strategic plan.
  • Explain the change you think is needed to address these issues and factors that might influence that change.
  • Describe a change theory and related change processes that may be applied to the issues related to your strategic plan.
  • Explain how you might apply the theory and processes.
  • Briefly explain two ethical principles, issues, or challenges that might arise in your efforts to apply these changes.
  • Explain how a professional code of ethics might advise in each case. Be specific, citing elements from an applicable code of ethics.
  • Explain the opportunities and challenges that you might encounter in fostering and implementing the change.

A strategic plan refer to the document which contains organizational information such as organizational goals and objectives, the necessary tools and actions needed to achieve the goals and all the other vital elements developed while in planning exercise. When developing a strategic plan one should choose what to include in the plan depending on what you are trying to accomplish. In most case plans are driven by known issues in the community that needs to be addressed or instances where elected bodies needs to give directions (Neis et al, 2017). While others are initiated by staffs in their pursuit to maneuver how to prioritize conflicting needs.

For instance, United Nations (UN) organization is an international organization community. United Nations serves to preserve and enhance international peace and security among member states. The reason why I choose United Nation is because of the new core focus and the role of United Nations peace keeping operation. Moreover, these new doctrines focus to contribute on understanding of UN peace keeping. The peacekeeping doctrines describe UN operations as security and political based with an essential role in enhancing overall coordination and coherence. Advocacy is essential strategy in achieving international development programming change. Therefore, numerous aid agencies involve the process of designing and implementing advocacy programs to influence political programs and policy decisions, political climate, resource allocation, public agenda, and social practice and norms (Aoi et al 2017).

Use of advocacy in strategic plans helps in enlarging the base of support, connections and networks. In addition, it gives credit in numbers such that you can achieve a lot together than when you are alone. Advocacy helps people in understanding your opinions and point of view by ensuring information is delivered in an understandable manner. It also helps one in making choices on what to do and consider other available services. Advocacy gives a room for one to express their views effectively.
