Send alert to person when "Responsible" field is changed

Hi everyone,


I think this might be a simple question as I imagine there has to be some functionality built in for this but I can't find a good solution.  I have a list and workflow operating as a Change Request management system.  The manager receives a notification of a request and can assign a responsible person and due date and that person then gets an email notifying them that they have been assigned (via wait for item update) and then the workflow waits for the status to be changed to "Request Fulfilled" before ending.


In the even that the responsible field is reassigned, is there a way to have the new person receive an email?  Either through some list alerts, a site workflow that runs daily to check for a changed value, or perhaps having my workflow sit there and look for an item update?


Thanks for any advice guys!
