Imagine you are on a team at your workplace and have identified a new best practice to implement. In this assignment, you will describe the steps of implementing this new practice. This will require you to do some research of your own about how change comes about in your workplace. You will need to check your policies and procedures and may need to talk with a supervisor with experience in this area. You will need to support your thoughts on why you think a change needs to occur. This should be done by using the literature.
