Course Overview

In order to keep up with today’s fast and continuously changing business environment, organizations are increasingly examining their own structures, development, culture and people to continuously improve their effectiveness and performance. Organizations usually face resistance, failure, and rarely deliver the intended benefits of organizational transformation and change and require the ability to lead people effectively through transition; by letting them embrace, adopt and engage in the needed transformation efforts. For the last decade, Organizational Development has been gradually taking over from HR and as a result, HR staff have had to acquire new skills. HR is no longer a subject on its own and companies are integrating it more into their overall strategic direction, which is why this course includes subjects such as Change, Leadership, Problem Solving, Decision Making, Teamwork, Emotional Intelligence, Motivation etc. Furthermore, it is now a core subject in all MBA programmes at Universities. Within the next few years it has been widely predicted that HR Departments will become an integrated function of Organisational Development Departments. This is their opportunity to become knowledgeable in the subject and help them to adapt not only their management and leadership, but also their career. This course can help them get ahead of the game.
