Managing Change – M level module


The module is designed to help practitioners and managers develop insight and critical awareness of change management theories and frameworks, and their application to the organisational setting in leading and managing change.

The students’ practice settings and experience will provide the context for learning.


Module Code: NAM07

June 2016 and June 2017

Teaching Strategies

Staff facilitating the sessions will utilise a range of teaching and learning methods specific to the topic being taught. These are intended to reflect and enhance the main learning outcomes.

The overall programme will therefore provide students with the opportunity to develop critical skills in change management via a combination of lectures and facilitated discussion.

Students have access to a range of study materials and resources via our Online Learning platform.

Topics Include

  • Perspectives on Leading and managing change from both the public and private sectors
  • Leading and managing change in complex and uncertain environments
  • Project Management; organising the change process
  • Use of Systems approach in managing change
  • Organisational Culture and its inextricable link to Leadership
  • Change models and their underlying philosophies


3000 words essay.

The assignment provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate wide reading, in-depth understanding and the ability to synthesize issues/arguments and theories that have been studied in the module.

The assessment may be either a critical analysis of a planned change or retrospective analysis of a change that has already taken place in the work or organisational contexts. If the writer is to play (or has played) a key role in the change process this role needs to be included and critically analysed. Details of the assignment will be individually negotiated during the course of the module and will reflect the student’s needs and interests.
