The topic, issue, or problem that you address with your paper needs to integrate insights from both organizational change and consultancy. It is not enough to address an issue focused exclusively on either change or consultancy.
The paper needs to incorporate three sections or deliverables. That is, introduction, connection of sessions, and discussion of novel insight(s). You may come up with a different order (e.g., integrate sections), however, you need to make sure that the reader can tell apart these three deliverables.
• Introduction. In the introduction, you need to introduce and explain your topic focus. This implies answering questions such as: What is the change and consultancy issue that you address? Which sub-topics (i.e., sessions) are at the centre of your paper? Why is this issue important to address?
• Connecting sessions. You must integrate insights from both change and consultancy. To this end, you must use insights from at least one session on change and one session on consultancy (more sessions can be integrated if you focus on both change and consultancy sessions)! Sessions 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are on change, sessions 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 on consultancy, session 12 is meant to address both parts. You may use the literature provided in the course manual; however, it should not make up more than 50 percent of the literature used. That is, you need to bring in a substantial amount of additional literature (not covered in the course). Integration of insights can take many forms. For example, you may identify similarities and differences, cause-effect relationships, and contradictions across articles. For other ways in which to connect articles and sessions, see Smith (1998).
• Novel insights. The aim of making connections across sessions is to arrive at novel insights on change and consultancy. Aim for at least one novel, academically interesting and practical idea. The ability to connect ideas, solutions, or questions across fields is at the core of creativity and innovation, and, thus, a key ability in leading change (see Dyer et al., 2009). For how to come up with novel ideas, see, for example,
