1.2 Introduction to the Module
This module provides the opportunity for learners to engage with, and explore, some of the practical challenges arising from planned and unplanned change in contemporary work organisations. The module is designed for learners to understand why change happens, how change happens and what needs to be done to make change a more welcoming concept. The module focuses upon on individual, team and organisational change. The module explores how different types of change whether departmental, divisional or whole organisational change affect and impact upon the people on the receiving end – individual human beings. Therefore, the module emphasizes that without looking at the implications of change on individuals we can never really hope to manage change effectively. Accordingly, this module complements the Level 3 Sustainable Management Futures module
In addition, one of the themes of organisational life over recent years has been the ascendancy of the team. Much of today’s work is organised through teams and requires team collaboration and team working for it to succeed. A thread running through the module will be the crucial role of leadership. If management is all about delivering on current needs, then leadership is all about inventing the future. The module focuses upon the importance of effective leadership arising throughout.
Learners will be encouraged to make sense of the changes that they might undergo, initiate and implement in the workplace. Learners will also be encouraged to make sense of, and apply the ideas, concepts and theories from the academic literature on organisational change in analysis of organisational change.
The module aims for learners to become aware of the practical difficulties of managing and coping with organisational change; and also to consider how effective workplace change might be achieved by individuals, teams and organisations.
Assessment is by way of three separate patches (1,000 words) on three different and specific subject topics using set literature.
Each 1,000 patch will address a specific question relating to a specific topic.
This module, like all modules at Anglia Ruskin, is taught on the basis of achieving intended learning outcomes. On successful completion of the module, the student will be expected to be able to demonstrate the following:
