This course introduces students to a broad range of current change literature and with the problems and key issues relating to managing change in organisations. Specifically, the course will focus on concepts, frameworks, and practical steps for managing organisational change. It will introduce students to a general model of planned change and the specific processes of planned change including contracting; diagnosing organisations, groups and jobs; collecting, analysing and feeding back diagnostic information; designing interventions; and leading and managing change. In addition, the course will focus on specific organisational development interventions at the human process, structure-team, and strategic/culture levels.
