About the Organisation Transformation and Change Management Field of Study
Nowadays, change has turned out to be the norm rather than the exception. Heraclitus of Ephesus, an ancient Greek philosopher (5th Century BCE), declared "you cannot step into the same river twice". Already then, Heraclitus of Ephesus declared that change is ongoing. Einstein, a German-born theoretical physicist professed that if you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. There are many variations of the alleged citation that change is continuous. Currently, it is common knowledge in business and social circles that more than 70% of change interventions do not achieve all its objectives. So why is it that not all embrace change? 

The Higher certificate in Transformation Management is a practical qualification enabling managerial leaders and individuals alike to deal with change on a continuous basis, whether from a business or a social perspective. The purpose of the change management programme is therefore to enhance the individual’s and managerial leader’s levels of competence during transformation intervention. The programme assists managerial leaders and individuals at all levels of operation, from all industries, with comprehensive insights on how to act agile and in what way to harvest sustainable change.

Not only are students empowered to comprehend the intricacies of how individuals and managerial leaders think about change, students also learn how to embrace change from a personal perspective or how to oversee change from a managerial leader’s point of view. Students also learn the distinction between leading transformation and managing transformation. Additional skills students acquire is to organise and manage change initiatives, i.e. engaging with stakeholders at different levels of operation and developing communications for diverse audiences.

Become a front-runner in change management and discover why change management matters in organisations. Develop knowledge of concepts such as episodic change and emergent change, and be able to explain the systemic nature of change that is ongoing, evolutionary, personal and transformational. Discover change as both a cognitive phenomenon and a universal event having understanding of the barriers and enablers that influence change events. Understand the prominent change management constructs used by people in their thought processes when dealing with change and justify the difference between positive and negative change.
