  • Deal with multiple aspects of organizational change
  • Manage change
  • Deal with resistance to change
  • Gain buy-in from all levels of an organization
  • Develop aculturally sensitive approach to change management
The course material is thus intended to help develop awareness and knowledge of multiple issues associated with change. The cases and class activities are designed to help students in applying theory to practical situations.

The course examines concepts and strategies used in managing change in various organizations. We provide an overview of the challenges businesses face during a change initiative and analyze some of the tools and strategies that companies use to tackle and successfully overcome these issues and challenges. We take a practical approach in our diagnoses and review the steps necessary to build an effective change initiative.
At the end of the course, students should be able to identify critical components of change management, dissect these elements to pin-point issues that may arise as a result of change and be able to make recommendations of how to effectively manage these issues.
Globally, we look at the process of change in organizations and its impact on individuals and organizations. We study how managerial philosophy, attitudes toward work, technology, culture and lifestyles can affect people’s perception on change and consequently its successful implementation.

The objective of assigned articles each week is to help students think critically about the points of view of thought leaders in change management. This will enhance our examination of how change models and principles can be applied to real world organizational challenges, and assist the student in developing leadership and managerial capabilities.
