The Implementing Change (IC) programme has been developed using a consultancy-oriented learning approach for middle or departmental managers who wish to work on a change project within their department. Participants are introduced to the concepts and practices of WBML, which they then use to plan and implement a project to achieve a specific workplace improvement.
In this programme, managers will reflect with experienced GCWAL facilitators on issues or problems within their organisations and go through a creative thinking and learning process using the WAL formula. They are introduced to the concepts and practices of Work-Based Management Learning (WBML), which they then use to plan and implement a project to achieve a specific workplace improvement.
With the guidance of the GCWAL facilitator and the use of the WAL formula, the managers will:
- Apply the programme knowledge to identify a real departmental problem to be solved
- Design a project as a solution with the support of their team
- Implement the first cycle of the project, reflect and continuously adapt the solution based on real workplace feedback and changing needs, and
- Be mentored to learn and reflect from the experience of solving the real-life work problem to achieve project and learning outcomes
The IC programme is Level 1 of the three-level Work-Based Management Learning series offered by GCWAL. The three levels within this series are shown below. Each consecutive level introduces new concepts, making the development process a gradual one, with growth in professional expertise over time.
Successful completion of the IC programme will result in the award of a certificate of completion. However participants have the option of obtaining certification from GCWAL as a Work-Based Management Learning Practitioner provided they meet additional criteria.
