Unit purpose and aim(s)

This unit focuses upon the leadership principles required to bring an organisation and its stakeholders through strategic change. It explores key models and methodologies and their application within a business context. Understanding how these principles support a company’s vision, values and strategic direction is also covered by this unit.

Strategic organisational change will be looked at, firstly by examining an organisation’s current position in its market and environment and then by considering drivers for change and the impact of these changes.

Finally, the unit considers the skills required to lead change management, with a focus on ‘softer’, interpersonal skills. You will explore opportunities for developing these skills, explore your own current skill set and prepare and present a personal leadership development plan. 

Assessed by assignment.
