Welcome to Oxford College. We are pleased to offer the Level 3 Diploma in Change Management. This quality assured Level 3 Diploma in Change Management provides a firm foundation for those embarking upon a new change management role. It can also support and develop the skills and knowledge base of those working in an existing change management role.
The diploma considers developments in management practice, specifically those areas relating to embedding vision and managing change, against the wider contexts of the UK, EU, US and global economies. This course will be of particular interest to those needing to implement change management skills in the workplace. Throughout, the student is encouraged to use the ideas both in the context of their own experience and through case studies, in order to enhance their knowledge of change management in practice.
The diploma provides detailed learning resources on a range of relevant change management topics, combining the theoretical background on aspects of change management with the practical tools, change management techniques and change communication formats needed for everyday change management.
Module 1. What is Change Management?
The first module will provide an introduction to the key concepts and issues relating to change management, and how these skills can be developed to implement change within a business or management structure. It examines the ways in which change evolves, and the change manager's role in this process. The module concludes with a range of guidelines on putting change management into practice, looking at both issues faced and the characteristics of effective Change Management.
Module 2. The individual as a Change Manager
This unit considers the roles and responsibilities of the change manager. It will focus on the essential skills required in the role of change manager, with tips and techniques for successful management of change and goal-setting. The module will provide support for the following aspects of change management; change problem-solving, effective change resolution meetings, change interviewing and giving or receiving change-related feedback. Appropriate management tools are explored, including change landscape analysis.
Module 3. Change Structure and Environment
Module 3 involves student evaluation of change organizational structures and the diverse environments within which change organizations operate. This module examines recent trends and change integration. It also looks at how managers can analyse the effects and consequences of change, and anticipate future evolution and organisational development.
Module 4. Managing Change Processes
Module 4 develops understanding of the processes involved in managing change, including planning and strategy, the costs and budgets involved and the benefits of understanding the change processes of a business. Practical advice is provided on facilitation of workshops as a manager, in the context of process improvement through change.
Module 5. Managing Change Projects
This unit will examine the core elements of a change project. It provides a step-by-step breakdown of the key phases required for managing change projects successfully. Advice is given on funding change projects, and on quality assessment. The module provides guidance on establishing roles within change project teams and effective problem-solving to enable successful management of projects.
Module 6. Managing Change Diversity
This module examines the increasingly diverse UK, EU, US and global change mandates and the business case for managing by diversity-unification principles. The unit will consider key change issues and issues of legislation, including those related to common challenges and potential conflicts, as well as the diversity of international regulatory styles.
Module 7. Compliance and Change
This unit is about the relationship between compliance and effective change. Resources include a review of compliance-caused/affecting organisational changes, managing the change-compliance process, dealing with individual resistance and cultural issues, the use of coaching, mentoring and facilitation development. The module examines the opportunities and strengths provided by compliance, as well as the threats or individual or group resistance to change.
Module 8. Quality and Change
This section looks at quality assurance and considers how we measure quality and change. If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it – this is part of a quality and change axiom. The use of change goals, related change performance indicators, service level agreements and benchmarking against all types of criteria will be considered, along with a review of quality-change management improvement.
Module 9. Audit and Change
An essential tool in evaluating the quality of change is the audit. This Change Management module outlines the use of audit objectives, related change-audit performance indicators, service level agreements and benchmarking will be considered, along with a review of audits and improvement through change management.
Module 10. Ethics and Change
This module presents recent trends in business ethics. Areas examined include corporate governance, environmental issues and social responsibility, all of which are a growing concern for organisations. Practical advice is provided with tips and guidance on developing effective Change Management presentations, with a focus on ethics. To conclude the programme of study, the student will undertake a course review to reflect on their learning. This will provide an opportunity to set medium-term and long-term career goals.
