Communication and education to promote change

  

Communication and Education to Promote Change

Who provides formal and informal leadership within your practicum setting? What power and/or authority do these individuals hold? How has this influenced planning for and implementing change in the past?

In this Discussion, you analyze the dynamics of your practicum setting with attention toward developing political acumen, which can be highly beneficial in your effort to facilitate evidence-based change. You also consider the need for education and methods that could be used to promote knowledge integration among various stakeholders. As you probe these issues, your goal is to develop strategies for building alliances that would support the successful implementation of the change you are proposing for your practicum experience.

To prepare:

  • How      would you describe the distribution of formal and informal power, as well      as authority, within your practicum setting? Think about the constellation      of professional roles. Which ones are most salient for the change you are      proposing? Who holds each of these roles? Who else within the organization      might have political clout and be able to serve as an ally? What approach      would you take to build productive alliances and generate buy-in for your      proposed change?
  • How      do you anticipate that this change would cascade through the environment?      What strategies would you employ to generate wide-scale interest and      investment in your proposed change, as well as the education necessary for      successful adoption? Evaluate specific structures related to      communication, training, organizational culture, and other factors that      relate to the implementation of sustainable change.
  • What      kinds of issues related to organizational structure and culture or      interpersonal dynamics could pose a challenge for creating buy-in and/or      promoting knowledge integration?
  • In      addition to reviewing this week’s Learning Resources, be sure to speak      with individuals in your practicum setting and conduct additional research      to enrich your thinking for this Discussion.
