This document is part of a five-module training package to help employment and training service providers comply with the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 and develop a one-stop training and employment services system. It consists of the participant workbook, trainer manual, and activity worksheets for a module on partnering and organizational change. The training manual presents a detailed lesson plan that includes step-by-step instructions for using the following tools and techniques to deliver the module: presenting overhead slides, having participants complete exercises; writing information on flip charts; using small group discussions; and using full group discussion. The workbook activities and worksheets are designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) help team members from different agencies decide what they need to know about each other and why; (2) help participants identify the key feature of each partner's mission, services, and products and how the agency does business; (3) teach participants to manage organizational change; (4) present participants with a series of one-stop center management models and help them draft a memorandum of understanding that meets WIA requirements and has meaning to all partners. The activities involve a variety of formats, including role playing, case study analysis, service mapping, and brainstorming. (MN)
