Organizational Change Management (OCM) concerns implementation. It is a Strategic Management and Organizational Behavior course designed for executives, line managers, HR managers, internal or external consultants, and project managers responsible for initiating and/or implementing strategic initiatives. The change initiatives that we will examine are cross-enterprise change at the organizational level – as opposed to change initiatives directed at the group or individual level within functional units. The course seeks to provide an understanding of the best practices of managing organizational change as well as an opportunity for participants to self-identify and enhance their personal skills with respect to their roles as both managers and targets of change.
The most carefully crafted plans for change can, and often do, fall apart during implementation, affecting not only operations or product/service delivery, but also the people who work in the organization. As a result, the costs to the organization are twofold – not only are the benefits of the planned change not realized, but employees can become disillusioned and cynical regarding future change initiatives. Despite the long history of introducing organizational change initiatives in corporations, there is little indication that these initiatives are sustained over time. This course focuses on the process of implementing change as the key facet and fundamental hallenge in managing organizational change. The process of managin organizational change is both an art and a science; consequently, there are two learning objectives of the course.
