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:

  • 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
  • how you might handle the effects of change through regular and appropriate communication

In addition, key areas of University strategy will be outlined, and links will be made to the Effective Behaviours Framework, as well as an indication of further resources that you may find useful in the Development Toolkit and Change Toolkit.
