Organisations face many changes, from launching new products to restructuring, and it’s the successful management of this change that ensures they remain competitive.
The Change Management Program is an online professional development program that will explore the principles of organisational change and the role of leadership in managing change.
You will discover the different types of organisational change, the internal and external forces contributing to change within organisations, as well as the management tools and techniques required throughout the change cycle.
You will gain an understanding of why change management is important, and use effective change procedures and practices to overcome conflict and resistance to change so that organisational goals are achieved.
Many leadership models and techniques are also explored in this course to facilitate the change process, from conception to implementation. You will also gain the skills and knowledge required to lead and manage people, prepare performance plans, undertake a SWOT analysis and identify how innovation and creative problem solving can lead to successful organisational change.
