Is the change in S1 addressing an opportunity gap or a performance gap? Is the change in S3 reactive or proactive? Is the change in S3 addressing an opportunity gap or a performance gap? Was it harder to lead proactive change or reactive change? At what phase did you observe the biggest differences in leading reactive change and proactive change? Explain your rationale and relate it to the situation at Spectrum Sunglass, i.e. the context for the change scenario. As the director of product innovation, you have no formal power.
