Description "Change Management"
Necessary innovations are often recognized too late in the company or meet with resistance. Change management addresses these problems. The task of change management is to initiate and control change processes, to support affected managers and employees and to achieve the highest possible acceptance for the changes. The lecture Change Management deals with the implementation of new strategies in companies. Based on the theoretical principles of change management, organizational and leadership-related aspects of changes in organizations are considered and questions of the practical design of change management projects are discussed.
Project management summarizes all tasks that arise with the initiation, planning, implementation, monitoring and control and completion of projects. Within the scope of the lecture, qualitative aspects are covered as well as the quantitative instruments that are applied along the project life cycle. The focus of the content is on the network planning technique. The application side is strengthened by working through exercises, guest lectures with subsequent discussion and a PC-based exercise.
