This course introduces you to the principles of Organizational Capacity for Change (OCC). OCC refers to the resources an organization has, that make it adaptable to a changing market environment. Capacity is multidimensional and comprises three core elements: human resources; systems and procedures; culture, values and norms. Leadership effectiveness is important for preparing and driving organizational change. You will learn about the importance of leaders building trust with their "followers".
You will learn that leaders must demonstrate skill and competence in making visions become realities. Successful change programs incorporate personal follow-ups, such as reminder notes, one-to-one coaching sessions and adequate time and resources spent working with others. 'Change Champions' are usually middle managers in an organization, who are able to influence others to adopt proposed changes, without having the formal authority to do so. You will study best practice guides which have been compiled from change management literature and research, as well as practical lessons learnt from change management projects.
This free Organizational Capacity for Change course will be of great interest to professionals looking to play a prominent role in change management processes.
