Organisations everywhere now operate in an environment of rapid, on-going and disruptive change. Leaders play a key role managing such change, which can include system-wide and local reforms, restructuring and innovations Often, many planned changes are not implemented in practice as originally conceived. This unit examines some of the forces of change and for change in society today, focusing in particular on both barriers and facilitators. Students will develop deeper understandings of change processes, appreciate the complexities of these processes and identify some strategies to successfully lead change.
