Resources: Theories, Models, and Frameworks
There are a variety of theories, models, and frameworks that can be used to explain key concepts related to the topic of a project or study that is based on a problem. It is often helpful to understand theories, models, and frameworks for guiding the proposal into practice. This may include using and evaluating process models; explaining what influences outcomes with determinant frameworks, classic theories, and implementation theories; and relying on evaluation frameworks to evaluate implementation endeavors.Read the following to learn the differences between theory, theoretical framework, and conceptual framework. As you read, consider how theories and frameworks can be applied in academic studies.Kivunja, C. (2018). Distinguishing between theory, theoretical framework, and conceptual framework: A systematic review of lessons from the field [PDF]. International Journal of Higher Education, 7(6), 44–53. https://doi.org/10.5430/ijhe.v7n6p44

Resources: Creating and Using Mind Maps
Change can be challenging, and many business problems lead to a need for implementing change to solve those problems, which are often very complex issues. Sometimes it is helpful to diagram the initiatives, concepts, or ideas to better visualize them. Mind mapping is a simple but powerful tool to do this. The following articles explain what a mind map is, how they’re used, and how to create one:Savage, K. (2019).

CHANGE MANAGEMENTOrganizations are continually changing as there are shifts in the marketplace and business environment. Changes can be related to shifts in consumer preferences, legal or regulatory changes, new competitors, technological advances, and many other challenges that businesses face. In this course, we have been looking at identifying business problems, where the solutions to those problems usually require some type of change. One model commonly used to achieve successful change is the ADKAR model, which is an acronym for Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability, and Reinforcement.
