The Managing Technological Change course provides participants with skills and knowledge that will help them introduce new technology or continuous improvement initiatives smoothly and effectively. During this course, participants learn a structured approach for dealing with the organizational and human aspects of technology transition, including the key concepts of change management, communication, and managing resistance.
This course consists of a set of carefully focused lectures, integrated with hands-on exercises that allow participants to apply the lecture content. There is one hour of homework each evening and a pre-course assignment of about three hours.
Because portions of the course are hands-on, participants are encouraged to focus on a specific, real-life technology transition project, either past or present. Participants will leave the course with the tools and approaches that will help them to plan and manage a technology transition effort in their organizations.
Participants are encouraged to be prepared to focus on a specific, real-life technology transition project, either past or present, with which they are familiar.
Participants will receive a course notebook with copies of the course slides.
