Seminar in Change Management
The only constant in today’s business environment is change. However, implementing change alone is not sufficient. It is also necessary to identify and prioritize the key organizational issues requiring change and to implement the necessary changes successfully. Furthermore, change must be defined and aligned at the organizational, process, and employee levels. In this seminar course, students identify and focus on the key areas of an organization that should be prioritized for change initiatives and for the development and implementation of strategies that will increase the success rate of the key change initiatives. Students formulate an original research topic related to the course literature and present and debate their findings through a peer work group. They accomplish course objectives by examining current information, such as foundational literature and theories, seminal works, and established models in the field of change management.
