This course examines and explores leadership and change management theories. Coursework is focused on understanding how organizational structure, as well as transformational learning and systems thinking, impact the creation of a culture that is change-ready. By applying adaptive change strategies, students will practice how to increase impact and capacity in higher education environments to create sustainable and long-lasting change. Students will build a working model of change leadership that supports improvement in a higher education setting. The model will focus on building arguments, use of evidence to support decision-making, needs assessments, cost-benefit analyses, culture, articulating outcomes, and assessment of impact analyses.
