In this unit, students will explore change leadership theory and project management methodology as they design an authentic work-based project. Students will study leadership, management, leadership of change and project management and will draw on local and academic sources to justify the change they propose to enact. Students will contextualise their change leadership practices within the healthcare environment drawing on relevant contemporary theories including systems, complexity and organisational learning theories. Students will be supported through the process of designing, planning and evaluating their work-based change leadership project and will have an opportunity to reflect on their leadership practice as they create an individual change leadership model.
