This assessment comprises three parts focussing on the diagnosis for change. When diagnosing for change there are a range of diagnostic instruments that can be applied to the management of change. Some are designed to highlight a particular aspect of the change process (e.g., the readiness of an organisation for change), some deal with one aspect of an organisation (e.g., its strategy or its structure), while others – diagnostic models – refer to the operation of the organisation as a whole.
Consider an organisational change you have recently experienced or are experiencing.
1. Provide an introduction and background to the change
Briefly explain the nature of the organisation, the industry, and the extent to which the change involves incremental adjustment or trasnformational change and the organisation's response.
2. Pressures to change
In regard to your organisation identify a range of environmental factors propelling it towards change, as well as issues internal to the organisation pushing it towards change. Which factors do you believe to be the key drivers’ of performance over the next five years and why (e.g., technological innovation, entry by new competitors, mergers, competition for key staff)?
3. Diagnostic tools/models
Select one diagnostic tool/model to assess and analysis your organisational change example. Which is the most attractive/helpful and why? To what extent does your image(s) of change influence which diagnostic tools you would be most comfortable using or see as most relevant?
Writing the Case Study
To learn from a case study analysis you will be ‘analysing, applying knowledge, reasoning and drawing conclusions’ (Kardos & Smith XXXXXXXXXXStages essential for analysing and writing a case study report may include:
· What is the context
ackground of the case study?
· What appears to be the problem (issues
isks etc.) inherent in the case?
· What tools will you use for your analysis?
· What else do you already know about this situation or this type of problem?
Please note:
1. In this assignment you are expected to relate your experience of change to an organisation with which you are familiar. Where your work experience is minimal you can apply the task to other organisations you have encountered, such as a sporting, community or social institution. Do not write about an organisation you have no association with.
2. No more than 10% of your final work should appear as directly quoted matter. The lectures and myReadings resource list will provide an overview of the key ideas of the course. However, it is not acceptable to limit your sources just to those provided by the lecturer. It is expected that you will read more widely to identify a range of different positions, and theoretical approaches relevant to the question.
3. You are expected to use a minimum of seven (7) credible sources. A credible source is:
· Peer reviewed (refereed) journals
· Websites from credible institutions such as the Bureau of Statistics and University-affiliated institutions
· Materials published in the last ten years (when more recent information is available)
· Websites: The more information available, the more credible the website. There is a specific author, the audience is clear, the purpose is informative not biased, and the information is regularly updated.
4. There are few marks for assignments that don’t answer the question – even if they are well researched and well written!

Introduction
The assignment comprises three most important aspects regarding a diagnosis for changes. The highlighted aspects are - the introduction and background of the industry, identification of a range of environmental factors those affecting the business, and selecting an appropriate diagnostic model or tool to assess the organisational changes. Here the giant organisation, McDonald's has selected to pursue the diagnosis by a valid reflection.
Summary of the business
A recognised premier franchising company, McDonald's has a unique model that empowers both the international and local entrepreneurs. The management believes in the long run by setting long-term planning to develop the profit and sales parameters respectively. Being one of the largest restaurant chains in the world, McDonald's has become able to serve its bests to fulfil the unique demands and needs of people. It may term that McDonald has become people's choice if they think about any delicious foods (mcdonalds.com, 2018).
Analysis and evaluation of issues of McDonald
In this phase of the assignment, a transformational change has included based on the McDonald's business responses. In the recent time, the giant organisation has underperformed compared to other organisations within the same te
itories (Welford, 2016, p.120). The very first issue of McDonald is its internal problems.
The internal issue of McDonald
The organisation is striving to perform better by appointing new staffs. The responses of employees are not up to the mark as because the internal strength is not upgraded. It is not surprising that the consequences are not to be hidden. As mentioned by Thornton et al. (2016, p.90) the employees' strength of McDonald has fallen and for this very burning reason, the internal issue has become an essential part of this report.
Environmental changes are also there regarding identifying those factors. McDonald's response to these two matters is portrayed. Some of the challenges and problems facing the giant restaurant chain are the increase in lack of response, competitions to the incremental and transformational changes in the needs of consumers and its franchises (Lin and Chen, 2017, p.320). In this regard, the incremental adjustment needs to assure by the management itself against its threatening responses.   
The value of a franchise   
The value of the franchise relationship between the restaurant chain and franchise partners is mainly accomplished by strategic fit and profit that means unit profit is essential here.
Relational constraints
