The Leading and Managing Change (LMC) programme has been developed to enable the workplace to become the learning environment using Work-Applied Learning. Participants don’t need to stop work to participate in change programmes away from the organisation. The programme is delivered online with in-built facilitation and the learning takes place at work, for work, through real work-based projects. This enables the learning to be directly integrated into the participant’s work situation.
The programme is designed for chief executives and senior managers who wish to lead organisational change by working with their managers and teams to introduce change and innovation into their organisation, for example by undertaking incremental improvements, adding a new feature to a current product, making a system or process more efficient, and/or planning and implementing new ideas to address challenges.
With the guidance of the facilitator and the use of the WAL formula, the participants will:
- Identify and diagnose the need for innovation and organisational change
- Properly research the problem and process
- Construct a design for a sustainable change plan using the Work-Applied Learning (WAL) approach
- Lead and manage the people issues involved in the change process, and
- Communicate change in a motivating and emotionally intelligent way
The LMC programme is Level 1 of the Work-applied Learning Change Management series offered by GCWAL. There are three levels within the WAL Change Management series as shown below. Each consecutive level involves deliverables and the undertaking of relevant online learning and virtual collaboration. The change process is a gradual one, with growth in professional expertise over time.
