Change Management for Organisations
Change can be instigated from within the organisation or imposed by external factors. Either way, making organisational changes needs to be well managed to win over the hearts and minds whilst preparing teams, individuals and the organisation for success. This requires the change leader to understand why people generally resist change, the motivational triggers for each team member and to be flexible and creative in achieving positive outcomes for all parties. This course introduces principles and models for enabling large scale change within teams and organisations. Evidenced-based models are explained for achieving successful change management.
The objectives of this course are to:
- develop an appreciation of both the business and people dimensions of change
- understand and apply a range of change management models, including models from Kurt Lewin, John Kotter and PROSCI
- understand your stakeholders needs and fears and develop an effective change management plan
- determine key roles in the change management process
- understand the impact on culture, processes and systems and sustain organisational change
