Management of Change

queen's prize

Effective managers must be able to implement long term strategic change whilst adapting to the opportunities presented by everyday turbulence. Only by understanding how adaption, change and transformation affects them personally can managers lead and inspire others to positively embrace future possibilities.

This module helps participants to understand the need for change, the tools and skills to plan and implement change programmes that “stick” and the personal capabilities to lead and inspire others.

The module is practical. Participants will apply current best practice and academic thinking to plan successful outcomes in their own organisations from large scale strategic change to the more individual and personal.

  1. Understand the need for change
  2. Understand the effect that organisation, culture and structure has on the ability to change
  3. Understand how to select and apply strategic approaches to change
  4. Differentiate types of change from adaptations to transformations and from personal to organisational levels
