Registration for the course, Achieving Organizational Outcomes through Effective Change Management, is now open. This is your opportunity to join learners from libraries across the province in a course designed to explore approaches to navigating change that increase collaboration, increase internal, external and community stakeholder engagement and mitigate the risks associated with poorly managed change

This course will offer opportunities for dialogue, learning a variety of approaches for navigating change as a strategy for introducing innovation, and partnering with internal and external stakeholders in service of achieving desired community and organizational outcomes.

Topics include:

  • Stakeholder identification and engagement (internally and externally);
  • Exploring the difference between change and transition;
  • Setting change up for success;
  • Mitigating the downside of change;
  • Navigating culture during change; and
  • The role of the change leader.

This online course is 4 weeks in length with approximately 4-6 hours of study per week including readings and optional webinars. There are no examinations. Estimated weekly commitment may vary depending on learning style and interest. This course is asynchronous with synchronous individual and group work expected throughout, as well as a need to keep pace with the course as it progresses week to week.
