am working for TD Bank as a data analyst. One of the changes that have recently
been announced in our group is changing the SAS scripts we utilized in
producing reports to python scripts. The transition from one programming
language to a different one required a lot of time and effort, which would
provide a valuable opportunity to apply theoretical models to analysis.
Purpose of the change: According to the management, SAS is more expensive and python is open source and easy to read/write/maintain.
The first page will be the executive summary. Then describe the change by answering the following questions ( it doesn’t need to be long). After the description, apply the two from the following change management models (better to be thorough and exhaustive).
