Organisational Change (7012EHR)

From the mid-18th century to the present time we have witnessed a series of major technological innovations that have transformed business, work and jobs. Examples include the steam engine, electricity and steel, Henry Ford's production line system of manufacturing and, nearer our own time I.T. biotechnology and nanotechnology. The Austrian economist, Joseph Schumpeter famously referred to such innovations as "gales of creative destruction" old industries being swept away, to be replaced by new ones. Schumpeter's gales of creative destruction continue to impact business, work and jobs. Organizations now have to compete globally; organizational structures have to be flatter, work contracts more flexible, business functions more interlinked, and strategies more innovation-based. Business has become a learning race, with human talent and intangible intellectual capabilities at its core. This course is about how contemporary organizations are dealing with these issues and what we can learn from their attempts to anticipate, adjust to and take advantage of change. The course is both theoretical and practical with insights being provided from the academic literature and businesses. We will look at change from an organizational perspective and seek the answers to a number of questions that are important to those of us that live our lives in organizations. What is happening in the world that may deliver changes in the future? What is the best way to manage change? What do I do if I am asked to lead a change? How do we effectively implement a change? What do we do about resistance? How can we better adapt to the changes we encounter as employees? This course is offered: Gold Coast: Trimester 2 Nathan: Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 Incompatible: 7910EHR AND 7414MGT AND 7418MGT AND 7432MGT (Managing Change through Responsible Leadership, HR Innovation & Change, HR Innovation & Change Mgt & Leading Innovation & Change )
