Organising for Change and Sustainability ZAC202

Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast, AMC - Sydney


Maintaining sustainable services and supports for individuals, families and communities requires organisations to adapt and respond to changes and increasing complexity in policies, community expectations and health and community service needs. This unit will introduce the concepts that underpin the ability of organisations to successfully adapt and change within and across sectors. Change theory, Lean thinking, fund-raising and sponsorship, inter-sectoral cooperation, service integration and environmental responsibility will be explored through the lenses of organisation, service provider and client. Skill management to optimise the existing and future workforce will be analysed.
