Managing Organisational Change
|Course code MNGT3005||Units 10||Level 3000||Faculty of Business and LawNewcastle Business School|
"Change is the only constant". (Diogenes Laertius) Managing Organisational Change examines the theories, frameworks and models of change within the organisational setting and addresses the viability of the contemporary organisation. The increasing dynamism of external and internal organisational environments is seen as both a strategic determinant and rationale for change within organisations and seeks to show how and why managerial responses to such dynamism are increasingly centred on the successful management of change processes. In this context, we explore the mechanisms of change and improvement in organisations, engaging in workshops, case studies, and experiential exercises designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
