Change Workshop

This workshop is appropriate for students wishing to undertake one of the following modules, which can be taken at all levels

  • Transition and Change Management
  • Leading People through Change

Transition and Change Management

Available at all levels.  This module may be studied either through workshop attendance or distance study.

The purpose of this module is to enable you to do that most challenging of things: help enable organisational change to take place.  Change is an inescapable part of both social and organisational life, indeed the leitmotiv, a recurring theme of contemporary organisational theory is that of manging and coping with change.  It seems that organisations and subsequently the individuals working within them, face an unrelenting stream of pressure from globalisation, socal and demographic trends, shifts in government policy and the development of new technology.  This module seeks to develop participants' knowledge and skills in the process of understanding, creating and coping with change within the workplace while being encouraged to develop the skills necessary for the management and facilitation of transition.

Whilst similar to the module Leading People through Change, the emphasis of this module is more concerned with analysing different approaches to achieving organisational change.  Whilst it is principally aimed at people in or aspiring to be in managerial positions this module may be of interest to those who wish to develop their understanding of the processes of change and those who wish to undertake research within this topic area.

Leading People through Change

Available at all levels.  This module may be studied either through workshop attendance or distance learning.

Leading People through Change is designed to enable you to assist with the process of change by equipping you with an understanding of leadership.

Whilst similar to the module Transition and Change Management the emphasis of this module is more on the focus of leading change emphasising the challenges of helping people cope with organisational change.  Whilst it is principally aimed at people in or aspiring to be the drivers of change, this module may be of interest to those who wish to develop their understanding of the crucial role leadership has within organisational transformation.
