AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to reflect on what has been taught in this course and how to apply it to my future employment plans. It will answer the questions asked about formal process change and what other items if any needed to be added to the business change plan created in units one through five. Last, the paper will discuss the course and how it has helped me with my own insecurities in being a leader. There are many important things in an organization as well as in a person’s personal life, and the one most important thing is change. It is important for someone or something to be able to change; change towards improvement, and better lifestyle, systems, applications and processes. There is a relationship between a personal change and an organizational change, after all organizations are control by people. From the Business Process Change Plan we learn that organizations of all kinds and from different industries benefit from implementing it into their systems.
