Education Aims: Organisational Development and Change (C84ODC) provides an introduction to the literature on organisational change and the practice of Organisational Development (OD). There is a strong case for arguing that organisational environments are increasingly turbulent and therefore organisations need to become more adept at dealing with change. As organisations provide the context for the work of most psychologists, the study of the key external drivers of change, and how organisations plan, manage and adapt to change (or fail to do so) is relevant to us all. The module comprises a series of lectures and practical exercises on topics that together define the area of organisational change.
Knowledge & understanding of:
Intellectual Skills: problem-solving, critical analysis & synthesis, critical evaluation and self-evaluation.
Practical Skills: the ability to reflect on what the research means for practice.
Professional Skills: retrieve information from databases and the Internet.
