When an organisation introduces change through an IT project, that change needs to be effectively managed from a technical and a workforce perspective. A technical focus ensures that the change is developed, designed and delivered effectively. The discipline of project management provides the structures, processes and tools to support this. A workforce perspective ensures that the change is embraced, adopted and utilised by the employees who may have to approach their roles differently as a result of the project. This course unit introduces Change Management principles, models and practice. In particular it seeks to demonstrate how people and teams are impacted by organisational transition and how the process of change can be managed. Through the undertaking of a yearlong project, using Project Management principles, the course will integrate the learning outcomes from ITMB second year core course units into the delivery of an industry sponsored team project.
