Managing Change: A 20/20 MDS® Workshop Kit
You will see in the module that some organizations can plan long-term change, with clear objectives and outcomes. Others have to cope with incremental change, perhaps with less clear outcomes, but even here the change has to be recognized, monitored and planned as a process. If change happens to you as a result of external pressures then you are in the hands of these forces.
As a manager you have to predict, make and manage changes or change will manage you. This is a constant challenge. People find change uncomfortable and threatening, and if you do not manage the process it becomes even more difficult as the pressures build up and reactions set in. As one saying goes:
‘People do not mind change - what they mind is being changed.’
This module will help you understand and apply the principles of change as a means of effectively managing the improvements that you have to make as part of your normal work role.
At the end of this module you will be able to:
- collect and analyze information on current services, products and systems and on potential improvements and developments
- compare accurately the advantages and the disadvantages of current practice and proposed changes and identify possible obstacles to change
- produce plans and recommendations based on the analysis of the human and organizational impact and the drivers and restrainers of the change
- apply techniques of communication, negotiation and participation to the process of agreeing changes
- monitor and evaluate the effects of change
- Change orchestration
- Thinking clearly and analytically
- Appraising people and performance
- Making decisions and weighing risk
- Reciprocal communication
The kit includes a scripted Powerpoint Presentation and a copy of the accompanying Participant Workbook which may be freely copied for participants.
