In the complex business world in which we all live and work, change seems to happen at the speed of light. Being able to effectively manage that change while executing strategic change initiatives can help propel a company forward or contribute to its demise. In order to be effective managers need an understanding of change management. This course examines change in organizations and the role and impact managers have in that change. Being an effective change agent through Appreciative Inquiry (AI) will also be analyzed in this course. AI is a widely recognized process for engaging people in change management. Students will analyze different change management initiatives and apply change management theory and techniques available to plan and manage their own change initiative.
