Topics in Leadership: Change Management is a hybrid course consisting
of 
A. four in-class meetings (12 September, 3 October, 7 November, 5 December)
B. online internet sessions.  The in-class sessions will include a
quiz on the previous internet sessions, a one-hour lecture, and a team
based case study.
C. two alternate final exam dates. Students may attend either 12 or 14 December.  
Students who have completed all assignments will be exempt from the final exam.


Change Management is one of the most important topics for Leadership.
All organizations face continuous change.  How well they cope with
such change is a significant determinant of their long-term success or
failure.  The class will focus on real-world case studies. They will
include large corporations, small business entrepreneurship, and
not-for-profit organizations.  A portion of the cases will be gleaned
from current news.


Texts are free. They may be downloaded from the internet.  


 Readings are practical and are similar to


A. Harvard Business Essentials, Managing Change and Transition.
"This book will inspire you to: lead change through eight critical
stages, establish a sense of urgency, overcome addiction to the status
quo, mobilize commitment, silence naysayers, minimize the pain of
change, concentrate resources, motivate change when business is good."


B. HBR 10 Must Reads: On Change Management
"The contents include: recognizing the need for organizational change,
executing the different approaches to change, preparing for
organizational shifts such as  M & A” (Mergers and Aquisitions) “and new 
leadership, addressing emotional responses to downsizing and helping people 
adapt, staying competitive through turbulent change."


C. Leading Change by John Kottler. “The rate of change is not going to slow 
down anytime soon. If anything, competition in most industries will probably 
speed up even more in the next few decades.  What will it take to bring your 
organization successfully into the twenty-first century.”
