Are you leading or experiencing a change in your organisation?
People are at the centre of organisational change. Aligning key stakeholders and securing their commitment to a new strategic direction, together with high levels of engagement, is what turns strategic plans into reality.
In this Postgraduate Award, you will explore the people side of organisational change and the implications for change leaders. This includes gaining a deeper understanding of the human reaction to change and the role of emotions. You will critically reflect on your responses and other’s responses to the change process. This PGA will also examine the organisational factors that create the context for change, such as the distribution of power. Based on this you will consider how you should adapt and evolve how you lead, to become more effective in your role as a change leader.
Through this insight, you will explore a range of strategies for effective change implementation and develop critical insights into the dynamics of change within an organisation. The learning will draw upon a variety of relevant case studies, plus guest speaker to provide a practitioner perspective.
This Postgraduate Award will run across four days of face-to-face teaching at our London base in The Shard, with a six week window to complete your assignments.
- Day one: You will learn about leading through change and uncertainty, and the role of trust, emotions and the psychological contract.
- Day two: You will explore designing change interventions and diagnosing the change context.
- Day three: You will delve into leadership, power and influence, and the dynamics of organisational communication in a change process.
- Day four: You will explore using behavioural insights to drive organisational change and how to develop your leadership action plan.
Your learning will be consolidated into two assignments, a reflective paper and a case study applying the concepts and theories from the module to critically assess your own effectiveness as a change leader, and identify key areas and opportunities for development.
