Leading Organisational Change
In response to the forces of globalisation and technological change, organisations throughout the world are faced with the need to constantly innovate to survive and succeed. Research conducted in a wide range of organisations and societies concludes that leaders play a critical role in the successful implementation of change. This course is organised around a problem-based computer simulation, Making Change Happen. This simulation is based on three decades of research on successful change in organisations. The simulation focuses on implementing a specific innovation, new communication and learning technology, in a school system. Participants will seek to develop effective change strategies that address a common problem of organisational change.
