LEADING ORGANIZATIONS AND CHANGE

ONLINE CERTIFICATE COURSE

OBJECTIVE

Organizations today are large, complex, difficult to understand and even more difficult to manage. To be successful, managers must have a strong knowledge of the social networks that connect people in organizations and how to leverage them. They should identify where the real power and influence of the organization lies. In order to implement successful initiatives, managers need to navigate organizational barriers to change.

Leading Organizations & Change is a thought provoking course with challenging work assignments, practical frameworks based on MIT research, as well as a powerful change management simulation to immerse you in the complexities and nuances of effective change. You’ll learn frameworks, models, and perspectives that you can apply immediately.
