This topic aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to lead and manage change in both government and not-for-profit organisations. It is designed to develop your understanding of the circumstances in which transformational change is required, how to prepare a change management strategy, why a majority of change management initiatives fail and what is required to successfully execute a transformational change initiative. To achieve this, you will analyse a number of case studies to determine where transformational change is required, the critical elements needed to make a plan strategic and the correct and appropriate frame through which to view an issue/issues. You will also identify the requirements for (and principal risk factors associated with) the successful leadership, preparation and execution of a strategic plan, as well as the personal capabilities that managers need to bring to a leadership role. In the course of this topic you will also prepare an implementation plan of your own.
