OTMT 634 Change Management (2)


The pace, the volume, and the complexity of change itself have increased significantly during the last decade, and the forecast is for no less in the years ahead. The topic of managing change and implementation often resided as a mere module in organizational behavior courses. For the professor, and presumably for the students who enroll in this course, there is a need to deepen our understanding of the challenges, the techniques, and the burdens associated with making major change in an organization. Indeed, today, many managers view their jobs-almost entirely-as managing change. The cases and materials in this course give students as much as possible the sense of “being in the shoes” of managers facing situations of change-in most cases as the change agent, but also as the change recipient.
