MGMT13-311: Managing Strategic Change

Description

A ubiquitous challenge in organisational life is how to effectively initiate, implement and sustain desired change. Although organisations continue to expend staggering amounts of time and resources on change initiatives, the majority of such efforts do not achieve their intended outcomes. In this subject, students 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. Since organisations consist of people, students begin with an examination of individual change to explore fundamental concepts before extending and expanding their scope to consider change at the organisational level. Students will have the opportunity to apply and test their understanding of change management principles through readings, case study discussions, exercises, role plays and individual and group projects.
