Fall semester 2007
Exam form: individual report
Write a scientific report on change in the organization studied, which could be the same organization as you studied for the group assignment. Two aspects should be covered:
1. Micro level changes, concerning individual or small group. Relate this aspect to the topics covered in the literature and lectures like learning, participation and work
2. Macro level changes, having impact on the organizational structure. Relate to relevant literature.
Writing about changes also includes an analysis and description of the obstacles to changes and forces that trigger change. If the organization that you study undergoes little change at the moment, your report should rather focus on the obstacles and concern how changes could take place under the circumstances that you describe.
This is an individual assignment, but you can and should discuss your drafts with the other students. You may cooperate on collecting data, and you might prefer collecting data also for this assignment on change during data collection for the first assignment.
The report will be assessed based on your ability to relate the empirical study to the literature.
To guide your writing, the process is organized as follows:
The grading of INF 3/4270 is Pass/Fail. You need to get a pass both in the first assignment and this second deliverable in order to obtain a Pass mark in the course.
General guidelines on how to structure your report:
General: At the beginning of each section: tell the reader what you are going to do in that section
