    1. Table 1.1 of your book (Palmer, Dunford, & Akin, 2008, p. 10) discusses a number of change lessons.

    1. Chapter 2 of Palmer, et al (2008) discusses six change images. Which of these images does Monique Leroux hold?  Does her image seem to change from 2008 to 2012? Would another image have been helpful in successfully implementing the initial changes she made? Why?
