EDA 78400 Leading Organizational Change

Leading Organizational Change equips students with the concepts, frameworks, best practices, and tools needed to lead change effectively in organizations. Course materials will address change management in various contexts, situating change in business, non-profits, and education such that students come away with a broad mindset and agility for leading change. As we learn, emphasis will be on the complexities of organizational change, models for approaching change management, the crucial role leadership plays in change, and how employees experience change. Students will have the chance to analyze change management case studies to gain an understanding of how changes have succeeded and failed in various contexts and will have the chance to demonstrate change leadership skills during a simulation and through an applied project pertinent to their field.
