Unit introduction
Leaders and managers at all levels of an organisation have important roles to play in delivering organisational change. Building on an understanding and appreciation of contemporary and seminal theories, concepts and models, learners will examine the role of leaders and managers as strategic agents for change where context, change types and change choices are key considerations.

Learners will explore different perspectives on strategic change where an appreciation of the relationships between organisational culture, power and internal politics, and organisational learning.  Understanding theses different perspectives will enable  learners to explore, in greater depth, how strategic change management is applied in practice.

Once learners are able to examine the internal and external environments of organisations and how these influence organisational change, they will be in a position  to design a change transition strategy where the conditions for change are effectively enabled. People can be both champions of, and resistors to change. As such, how they are managed is key to the success or otherwise of a change initiative. Learners will explore the role of leaders, managers and the human resources team as tools to engage with employees and establish the conditions which will facilitate a successful change and deliver required performance outcomes.

Using this knowledge as a basis learners will consider ways in which a change strategy should be approached before producing a change strategy for an organisation.  This organisation could be real or contained within a case study.
