Trainer's Welcome and Introduction
Understanding the importance of change management as a leadership skill
An examination of why change management is important for modern managers and leaders and a description of the key concepts in change management. An introduction to the work of John P Kotter’s eight steps to change process.
Introduction to complimentary and contemporary change management research and theories
This session starts by examining the complimentary classic change management theories whilst at the same time recognising that, modern challenges may require modern solutions. And so delegates will examine the very latest thinking on change planning and delivery in a public sector context.
A look at how resources can be managed effectively including planning regimes, budgeting, the role of audits and the need to focus on outputs and delivery methods. Finding New Cost Effective Solutions, including outsourcing to the Third and Private sectors
In this session, theory is applied to real world challenges and delegates will examine how to get traction as we seek to plan and deliver change. Facilitation of change, including identification and treatment of resistance factors, is examined as well as how people respond to change
Change delivery and evaluation
In this part of the programme delegates examine how we ensure that change is successfully delivered and how this can be facilitated by the use of well considered performance indicators. Momentum maintenance is also discussed as well as how well managed change work invests in a robust evaluation process that concludes with celebrating success.
