Description

In this course, you will learn about change in organisations. Types of organisational change include: Process changes; Re-structuring; Culture change and Systems implementation. The success of any change initiative depends on the ability of the people involved to accept and embrace the desired change. Change can be disorienting, creating stress and anxiety for people and many people’s first reaction is to try to avoid the change. Others will actively resist change through tactics such as negativity, destructive criticism and even sabotage.

You will learn how leaders in organisations can work with others, to enable them to effectively transition through organisational change. You will see how a communication strategy helps to guide communication activities through the change process and ensures that all stakeholders are actively engaged. Different communication channels (Intranet, Print and Face-to-face) are used. Organizational change is a process that is facilitated by planning and analysis, but it is also influenced by serendipity and chance. You will be able to distinguish between planned, emergent, episodic and continuous forms of organizational change.
