About this course

This course for managers and supervisors focuses on understanding change in the context of the University strategy. The session is based on change and managing people and will explore:

  • the causes of change and the change curve

  • change and how it comes about in your area of the University
  • what you might need to do to prepare for, and lead and manage, change

Exercises will be done individually and in small groups. As with all courses, confidentiality will be discussed at the beginning of the workshop.
