Cursusdoelen
At the end of this module, students will be able to:
  1. Explain the scientific roots of organizational/team/individual-level change theory and its various streams and their premises (i.e. radical vs. incremental, top-down vs. bottom-up).
  2. Show how various perspectives on organizational change are applied in specific real-life cases and evaluate the usefulness of these perspectives in terms of explanatory power and how this relates to responsible change.
  3. Evaluate a real-life change process in terms of lessons learned and propose points for improvement for the focal organization, taking into account the principles of responsible change making and potential issues/contingencies that may occur.
  4. Reflect on your own behaviours and challenges as a future change agent and how they might positively or negatively affect others in the change process.
Inhoud
Big plans for innovative initiatives that aim to change our lives in various ways are easier designed than realised. This module will increase your knowledge of and skills in the change making process that has many different layers: cognitive, behavioural, and affective. The module will provide answers and insights into: What are your unique talents and skills as a change agent? How can you persuade others and mobilise them to participate in the change? What factors must be considered when trying to change or co-create with (transdisciplinary and cross-cultural) colleagues, teams, among whole organisations, or even societies? How can you span boundaries and act inclusively regardless of existing scheme’s such as hierarchy/seniority?
As part of the learning process you will actively participate in interactive (guest) lectures, Harvard Business school type case discussions, reflection meetings and workshops provided by a variety of change experts. On a Saturday right before the beginning of the module (at February 4, 09:45 – 15:00 o’clock), you will participate in a one-day Insights Discovery workshop during which you will receive a survey-based individual personal behavioral preferences-type report which provides you insights into your personal preferences regarding organizing your own (work) life and team collaboration. Hence, please reserve this date already in your agenda. Throughout the module, you will work in groups on observing change in real-life by shadowing a change practitioner during one or more days, analyze the change approach, and provide written advice to the change practitioner. All these work methods result are input for your thorough reflection on your own contribution and behavioural roots to ‘making change’ happen responsibly.
