    Thanks for your help. I have now reserved this post for you as per your email earlier for the price of 6 credits. I have listed down my requirements below:

    1) I'm looking to have about 750 words of literature review written up about the various change management approaches/models that are available. Please do 3 to 5 models but Kotter's 8 step model needs to be one of them.

    2) As this is a literature review, I feel that just listing out the different models and their characteristics won't be sufficient. I am therefore looking for the following story line:
    a) What are the most popular approaches/models which are being utilized today?
    b) What are some of the similarities and differences between these models?
    c) What are some of the associated pros and cons of utilizing each of these models?
    d) Finally, it needs to say that the focus of the rest of this research paper is going to be on the Kotter model.

    3) The literature review needs to be supported by several academic references.

    4) The write-up must also be 100% plagiarism free, which brings me to my next question.

    5) Will I have sole ownership of the write-up that you're providing or will this be posted onto the solutions library later on? The reason why I'm asking is if this is to be posted on the solutions library so that other users can purchase it later, Turnitin is without a doubt going to be able to pick it up when I submit my assignment.

    Please do let me know and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
