The extent, pace and scale of change that businesses need to manage, has grown significantly. Particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), this can pose challenges around the resources, capacity or skills needed to manage change.

NTU's new Effective Change Management course is designed to help senior professionals, managers and leaders within SMEs that are currently going through change, to design, implement and lead change effectively. It is relevant for businesses of five or more employees.

This course is fully funded (no cost) for employees of eligible SMEs in the Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) region, and is accredited as a 20-credit module at postgraduate level, but you do not need to have any prior qualifications to attend.

Throughout the course, you will:

  • gain insight into researched, evidence-based and well-established approaches to change management whilst also providing opportunities to apply new knowledge to changes within your organisation.
  • explore organisational barriers to change
  • design your change
  • understand how to effectively implement change
  • understand the impact of leadership and personal effectiveness during change
  • identify more effective ways to engage people with change.

The course is delivered fully online, providing flexibility through self-study and the opportunity to collaborate and share good practice through ‘live’ facilitated sessions.

Evidence suggests that a high percentage of change efforts fail. The Effective Change Management programme is aimed at helping SMEs successfully manage this.

Course dates

The course will start on 13 April 2021 and run until 4 June 2021. It consists of six 1.5 hour online sessions that you will be required to attend, alongside the completion of additional on-line self-study and a report to support the design and implementation of change in your organisation.

Dates of the six online sessions are:

  • 13 April 2021
  • 20 April 2021
  • 27 April 2021
  • 11 May 2021
  • 18 May 2021
  • 25 May 2021
