The main objective of this module is to enable students to understand, plan and achieve organisational change successfully. The received wisdom in much of the business world is that change has to be fast, large-scale and transformational if organisations are to survive. However, there is also evidence that many successful organisations take a much slower and more cautious approach to change. In addition, the failure rate of change initiatives is claimed to be around 70%. It follows from this that managing organisational change is one of the most problematic tasks leaders undertake, and that the ability to do so is a key attribute of successful leaders and successful organisations. This module will examine the changing nature of organisations and the challenges they face. It will examine the main approaches to managing change and show how these relate to the types of changes that organisations are undertaking especially in terms of individual, group and organisational behaviour.
