In the United States, it is estimated that over 70{6e6090cdd558c53a8bc18225ef4499fead9160abd3419ad4f137e902b483c465} of all change endeavors – ultimately fail (Burke, 2000). It is speculative that such change endeavors would greatly be enhanced by utilization of many of the key organizational change methodologies used by change practitioners. Organizational change methodology can provide change practitioners with tools and techniques to make changes a collaborative and rewarding experience thereby increasing the prospects of successful changes. The integration of such change methodologies during mergers and acquisitions can also help practitioners to minimize the loss of personnel and instill an environment that is focused on organizational effectiveness. The value of such change methodology can enrich lives of those affected by the change by creating a rewarding, collaborative, and team-oriented environment. This case study chronicled the application of various change models implemented during a merger of a vocational college to meet the higher education accreditation standards. The study also delineates my plans, as the newly inherited organizational leader and principal change agent, to improve the organizational culture, leadership, and organizational effectiveness of the institution. The case study illustrates the change processes that took place and references the key scholarly literature that were used as reference materials during this transition.
