Organizational Development and Change
Submit Final Research Paper Topic
Begin preparing for the Final Research Paper Proposal.
The Research Project Proposal’s focus should be on identifying a business problem or opportunity and proposing a change management solution. You will need to identify a real-life business that you are familiar with or a fictitious one that you could picture properly. The business must have a problem or an opportunity that requires an organizational change management solution.

It gives information about the organization we are doing the organizational change management project for, a description of the problem/opportunity, and an overview of the organizational change management. The proposal must be submitted and feedback received from the professor before doing the rest of the project. The proposal should be one and a half to two pages (not including cover page, table of contents, bibliography and appendices), double spaced, using Times New Roman font, 12-point, using 1 inch margins, and headings for the paper format requirements.
The proposal should consist of the following:
