This module will investigate and discuss leading change in organisations from a theoretical sound and practical perspective. Marrying theory and practice will allow students to critically reflect on organisational change processes and to apply their knowledge directly to real world cases and practices. Furthermore, understanding and challenging practices of leading change will contribute to students' employability and their personal development. More specifically, the module will focus on:
