EXEC71-031: Strategic People Management and Organisational Change


One of the essential competencies for effective leadership is the ability to effectively initiate, implement and sustain desired change. Although organisations continue to expend substantial time and resources on change initiatives, the majority of such efforts do not achieve their intended outcomes. In this subject, you will explore the underlying reasons for these failures to examine the fundamental nature of change and the challenges that change agents at different organisational levels face as they plan and execute change. You will also have the opportunity to reflect on your personal development over the past year and to consider your personal goals for continued improvement.
