WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP: CHANGE MANAGEMENT Overview Organizations must frequently respond to changes in their external environment arising from technological advances, economic and regulatory shifts, variations in demographic trends, and increased competitive activity. New opportunities for value creation can also spark changes in organizational structures and company cultures. However, organizational changes and change initiatives, no matter their potential for positive outcomes, are likely to take a toll on managers and employees alike. This course examines ways to effectively structure and implement change within an organization to improve performance and respond to potential challenges. Students will learn change management theories and how to apply them, ways to mitigate resistance to change, how to combat change fatigue, tools of cooperation, and the key elements of successful change efforts.
