Provide an example.   Erica Richmond Posted Date Oct 27, 2021, 6:33 AM Unread Topic 3 Summary Hello Class, Our discussions regarding the role of leaders during change initiatives and the organizational impact of disruptive change were deeply enlightening! I believe the following quote by Christensen and Overdorf (2000) provides an excellent summary of Topic 3: Despite beliefs spawned by popular change-management and reengineering programs, processes are not nearly as flexible or adaptable as resources are and values are even less so. So whether addressing sustaining or disruptive innovations, when an organization needs new processes and values – because it needs new capabilities – managers must create a new organizational space where those capabilities can be developed (pg. 72). The solutions offered by Christensen and Overdorf (2000) include creating new boundaries for existing organizational structures which facilitate new and enhanced processes or acquiring a new organization altogether which better facilitates new processes as a result of the change. Notice that their solutions are mostly process focused and not people-centered. In our discussions, we also brought up the importance of not losing sight of “people” and employee buy-in during times of change as well. Dr. E References Christensen, C. M., & Overdorf, M. (2000).

Incremental change is when change occurs at a slower pace over time, less drastic and gradually develops changes/plans within the organization (Day, n.d.).  Incremental change can improve efficiency, gives understanding, and build stronger rapport and moral within the organization. Click here to ORDER an A++ paper from our Verified MASTERS and DOCTORATE WRITERS: What is “disruptive change,” and how is this different from “incremental change?” Disruptive changes occur every day in our lives; however, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an increase in disruption. The Covid-19 pandemic placed disruptive change, crisis mode, on many aspects of my organization from available resources, chain supply, staff, visitor policies, technology, and elective surgical cases being canceled, to list a few. With the changes that have occurred within my organization will/has affected the whole organization. An example of disruptive change that is currently occurring at my organization is the need to have to cancel elective surgeries either the night before, morning of, and in some cases when the patient arrives at the hospital due to not having enough hospital beds and/or staff at that very moment. With my hospital needing to cancel elective surgeries and if other hospitals are not needing to, it can cause our organization to lose patients to another organization especially when they are being canceled on the spot of arrival. Another example of disruptive change during the pandemic is technology and the use of telehealth/telemedicine visits. This has been a challenge for many patients since many may not have the technology tools to complete these visits, not educated clearly on how to use the tools and/or financially unable. Abrupt technology has caused patients difficulty in accessing their electronic health record portals and communicating to their provider through them. “A lot of the changes are so gradual that they don’t even qualify as news, or even as interesting: they’re so mundane that we just take them for granted. But history shows that it’s the mundane changes that are more important than the dramatic ‘newsworthy’ events”-Robert D Kaplan (Fingerprint for Success, n.d.).   References Day, J.
