Change, Strategy and Projects at Work provides a working insight into the nature of change, the formulation of strategy and the implementation of change through projects in the workplace. It is a ‘how to’ book with real practical application, containing the tools, techniques, advice and guidance you need to analyse organisational context, develop a strategic plan and manage a project.
To help you in leading change and creating opportunities for yourself and your organisation, the book takes an integrated approach to managing change, developing strategy and project management, and covers:
* How strategic objectives are chosen, promoting awareness of the wider organisational context and the strategic planning process
* The knowledge, tools, techniques and confidence needed to act as a change agent
* The skills, competencies and other attributes needed to improve your employability
The book is ideal as a dip-in guide for professional development, a self-study resource or a textbook for formal courses on change, strategy and project management in a work context. It is used to support the Open University’s undergraduate course ICTs, Change and Projects at Work (T226).
