Managing Change

Book Online

The ability to manage change is one of the most important competencies that public sector organisations expect from their managers and staff, especially in the current climate. Yet, research shows that typically many change efforts in organisations fail. Organisations need people in key areas who both know what needs to be done to make change happen and can work with others to get results. This means that those involved in managing change now need to have the skills of a ‘change agent’ – someone who can work with others and influence them to do things differently, and better.

This one day introductory course is designed to meet the needs of those who wish to increase their skills in managing change. The workshop will provide them with the tools and techniques to implement change more effectively in their organisations.


Upon completion of the programme participants will have:

  • Enhanced their understanding of how to lead and manage change more effectively
  • Acquired tools and techniques for planning and implementing change solutions
  • Increased their awareness of how individuals react to change
  • Acquired strategies for handling resistance


The course will cover the following areas:

  • Key steps in planning and implementing change
  • Engaging stakeholders
  • Leading change
  • Creating a culture of change
  • Managing resistance
