Organizational change management is an applied field that provides the support and resources needed to adapt to change and meet business goals.

Navigating change is challenging, for both people and organizations. Being able to quickly and cost-effectively adapt, innovate and evolve are critical skills in today’s rapidly shifting landscape. Change management — a set of principles and practices applied to the human aspects of executing major change initiatives at the organizational level — creates an effective way forward.

This lean, focused program uses a structured approach to combine theory with practice. Work with experienced change management professionals on real-world examples and case studies. Learn how to lead, facilitate and sustain change in a high-performance organizational culture, from day-to-day work processes to large initiatives such as IT implementation.

Explore the foundations of effective change management for organizational success, including the role of change leaders and managers. Discover tools and techniques for assessing organizational readiness, capacity and preparedness for change. Consider the behavioural, generational, geographical and cultural aspects of managing change. Develop practical strategies and techniques for creating a change management strategy and learn how to successfully implement it to reach your desired outcomes.
