YOUR TASK AS A CONSULTANT
You should address ALL of the following tasks:

Second, what will The Green Room need to do differently in its people management approaches now and why?
- Leadership and culture are intertwined in The Green Room. Using relevant theories of BOTH leadership and culture identify the strengths and weaknesses in the organisation at the moment and make some suggestions about what might need to change and why. You should also suggest how these changes will help the organisation to operate more sustainably in the future.

Using relevant theories of change management and applying these to specific examples in the case study, set out what the key changes need to be and provide a change process that could be followed by the management of The Green Room AND explain how and why this would allow for successful change.
