One of the major contemporary issues facing virtually all organisations is the fast-changing and highly complex and dynamic environments within which they operate - both externally and internally. There is a constant drive for organisational change - not only to survive but to be able to compete and be successful and sustainable. It is essential for you as a leader, manager or change agent to be familiar with and have competence in the area of leading organisational change. More than ever before, you as a leader, manager or change agent need to focus on the continuous renewal of your organisation(s) on various fronts. You not only need to know how to go about leading and managing change for improved organisational performance and sustainability, but also be more sensitive to your own ability to change yourself. In this course you will be required to demonstrate your practical ability to take part in or evaluate some change management programs and interventions, in particular contexts.
