Course Description: What makes this Leadership and Change course unique?
This course is about the management of change. It covers both planning for change and devising strategies and approaches to implement change and to lead others through it. Incremental change is ever present in modern organisations and more significant changes also take place regularly. Nevertheless adapting to change can be a traumatic process even in organisations which are accustomed to change and there is often a chance that unsuccessful adaptation may have serious consequences for the long term effectiveness of the organisation. Some organisations may be unable to survive if they cannot adapt.
This is what makes this Leadership and Change course unique. It is intended to enable candidates to look at a number of techniques for planning and implementing change and at different approaches and techniques to management and leadership. Together, this should equip candidates to think carefully about change and how best to ensure that they, and their organisations, are able to tackle the change efficiently and effectively so that the benefits are realised and any disruption is minimised.
If you have not yet started on your managerial career, this course can give you the confidence to successfully tackle change when you meet it as a manager. It may also help you contribute to the successful management of change in a non-managerial capacity.
