Planned policy changes, technological progress, financial pressure as well as growing interaction with the private sector confront organisations with a rising number of challenges for strategic and organisational change. Equally, internal reasons like leadership change or dissatisfaction of staff may contribute to the change of targets, structure, processes or personnel management. Managers will therefore have to be equipped with the necessary capabilities to participate in or direct organisational change and assess approaches and tools which are fitting.
The course intends to provide students with an understanding of different approaches to and pitfalls of organisational change. The course will focus on organisational change within public organisations in different contexts, and will also contrast it to private sector practice. Participants will discuss the practice of organisational change in the German and international context, looking at their own experience and cases introduced by the convenor.
