This unit takes an interdisciplinary perspective to prepare students for understanding the diagnosis, design and implementation process of change at group and organization-wide levels. The need to manage change is recognised as a critical success factor for organisations. This unit provides students with the change management and development theory and practical skills required so that organisations can better meet the challenges posed by global, cultural and technological forces for change and corporate social responsibility. Students are introduced to various concepts, methodologies and tools in organisational change and development, including diagnostic techniques such as in-depth interviewing.
