Managing and Leading Innovation and Strategic Change
Overview and Aims
“The only constant in organisational life is change”
The programme focuses on the critical requirement for business strategy to recognise and embrace necessary change to remain competitive in the rapidly changing global business world.
The design of the programme aims at enabling participants to focus and reflect on both themselves as an effective leader and agent of change and enables them to develop an understanding of organisational change strategy and the significance of innovation.
