Managing organisational change – How to lead change within a political and administrative context

27-29 November 2018 | Executive Seminar

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 therefore have to be equipped with the necessary capabilities to participate in or direct organisational change and assess approaches and tools which are fitting. This seminar permits participants to develop an understanding of different approaches to and pitfalls of organisational change. It analyses and reflects on organisational change within public organisations in different contexts and countries, and contrasts it with private sector practice.

Participants of this course dive deep into the practice of organisational change, looking at their own experience (or professional challenges) in addition to discussing cases introduced by the seminar directors and experts from practice.

Participants are prepared for the leadership of organisational change processes, by focusing on knowledge, skills, values and attitudes needed to manage strategically. They learn about assumptions, concepts and tools of various approaches to change management and how to apply these to real life situations.
