Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Organisations are under pressure to change. The need for flexibility, team work, customisation and problem solving in the work context has created a need for understanding how organisations change and the way that change is managed. In this subject students will focus on educational organisations and how they are responding to social, economic and political change. The focus is on the key stakeholders, management and workers, and the way that organisational change impacts on their life and work in the organisation. Students will be introduced to change management theories, especially those relevant to educational organisations and apply the theoretical knowledge to their experiences and practices. The common focus is on how people might be enabled to deal with such changes. Recent case studies of workers whose institutions are changing are considered, together with practical strategies for the development of practical management skills.
