Guiding Coalition Recommendations Introduction In ongoing efforts to identify potential buyers for the organization, the strategic planning team actively evaluates the exit strategy. It will subsequently provide recommendations to the board of directors. Preliminary analyses are currently underway to facilitate the organization's sales planning. The primary objective at this stage is to establish a guiding coalition within the organization. This report aims to identify individuals within the organization who can shape, lead, and sustain the change process associated with selling the organization. Based on the employee personas report's findings, four individuals have been selected to form part of this guiding coalition. These individuals have demonstrated influence and dedication, essential for making a constructive impact while guiding the change initiative. Recommendation When assembling a team for the guiding coalition, it is imperative to consider four crucial characteristics for effectiveness, as outlined by Kotter(2012): position power, expertise, credibility, and leadership. The selected individuals for this coalition are as follows: 1. Omar, Manufacturing Director 2. John, Research Director 3. Elaine, Acting Director 4.
