Course description

Leading Organizational Change

Most organizations are now under tremendous pressure to change significantly the way they operate. Thus, the skills required to lead or help bring about organizational change have never been in more demand. However, most organizational change initiatives fail. One reason is that leading an organizational change usually requires navigating perilous psychological waters with those who experience the change. Organizational change initiatives often run aground on the unforeseen or ignored rocks of employee disinterest, exhaustion, demoralization, frustration, outrage, and paranoia. We will investigate how effective change leaders steer their organizations clear of these hazards.

This course really helps outline a new way of thinking of process change in a comprehensive way. From understanding the goal and roadblocks to re-enforcing the importance of buy in from stakeholders and using pushback as a tool to adapt, the design thinking process shared establishes a path to create effective and lasting change.

It was great to learn the root cause analysis for organizational issues and the need to start the initiative with a process analysis.
