Subject outline

The impact that leaders can have on innovation and change is addressed, as is the process of leadership, which is examined with a focus that extends beyond people management to embrace the influences on innovative thinking and technology as well as changes to strategy, structure and processes. Important issues integral to the leadership process itself to be addressed include transformational leadership and current exemplary leadership practices. Issues relating to innovation include knowledge management, cost reduction, restructuring and the learning organisation. Finally the nexus between leadership and change will be explored. Key issues include change models, managing resistance and forming strategic alliances. Students will be able to appreciate the connections between these topics.
