Managing Strategic Change

This elective module explores change management and implementation, including understanding the need for change, individual responses to change, planned versus emergent change, and tools for change. These are specifically addressed through case study examples and relevant change management theory. This module can assist students in their preparation for their final challenge, focused on consultancy, where they undertake a consultancy report with recommendations for a real business and must understand how implementation might follow. Managing Strategic Change consequently provides an excellent opportunity to move beyond analysis to explore implementation and the consequential human issues evoked through change, and prepares students for the ultimate part of the programme.
