Understanding and Embracing Change
This course is for staff with no management or supervisory responsibility, who may be currently experiencing change in their working life, or who are likely to experience change in the future.
Change is one of the few constants. Technology, civilisations and organisations continually adapt and react to the environment and demands around them.
UCL recognises that change is an integral part of organisational life, and as a modern, world leading university we need to be able to adapt to changing circumstances.
In order to make change a success, organisations need to anticipate, evaluate, plan for and implement it effectively. Research shows a high proportion of change efforts do not realise the benefits sought, as the process can often be disruptive, multifaceted and difficult.
Having developed a new strategy, changed the structure and processes, created new roles or implemented new technology, the key factor in successful change is… people. Managers play a critical role in ensuring that team members are included in the change process, but staff themselves also play a key role through understanding the process of change and their potential reactions to different types of change.
This course has been developed with a focus on supporting members of staff who are not responsible for leading or managing change, but play a key role in making change a success. You will have an opportunity to further understand organisational change in order to respond effectively and increase your ability to adapt during periods of change.
