This unit examines contemporary change management and sustainability theories with a focus on how they are applied in practice. Topics covered include leadership, power/ politics and strategy as they pertain to organisational change initiatives, in addition to measuring change initiatives and innovation. The case study method is extensively used in this unit to allow students to appreciate the interconnectedness of an organisation’s systems and develop their problem-solving skills by proposing solutions to complex problems. Change managers are invited to give guest lectures to reinforce the nexus between theory and practice.
