Executive MBA Change Management

The course is designed to give the participants a sound grasp of complex organizational change management and organizational design. The challenges managers are facing today in view of continuous change require them to be familiar with the basic concepts as well as the pitfalls of organizational change. As current or future managers, participants need to be able to disseminate best practices and effective strategies to design and implement change management projects successfully. Furthermore, they are responsible for strategic resources such as knowledge in order to create and maintain a learning organization.

The idea of the course is that participants will discover theories and practice by analyzing and teaching the main insights themselves. This will happen through intense case discussions that typically start with a brief theoretical introduction by Prof. Probst, followed by a case presentation of the participants, a more intensive debate in smaller focus groups if appropriate, and a subsequent in-class discussion.
