MNP-5150 Leading Strategic Change in Public Service

Managing organizational change is challenging at the best of times. In today's dynamic fast-paced global environment, change is a constant component of organizational life. Whether the change is simple or complex, organizations must constantly change or die. Leaders need to act as change agents to envision necessary change and effectively lead an organization through a change initiative. This course prepares participants to lead change within a variety of organizational settings. Models for the creation and communication of change plans are examined to develop an understanding of the specific challenges associated with change. The theory and methods for effective implementation of change plans are used to examine the practical realities of change implementation in modern organizations.

Note: This course builds upon MNP-5020: Leadership and Management in Public Service, although that course is not a prerequisite to MNP-5050. While there is some overlap in content between the two, MNP-5050 has a far greater emphasis on application and skill development than MNP-5020.
