Unit title Leading strategic change in health and social care

Unit Objective
The ability to lead and manage sustainable strategic change is the defining characteristic of an effective senior manager in the unstable and unpredictable conditions in which health and social care organisations have to operate today. This unit builds on the Managing Your Enterprise unit and examines further the issues that determine successful adaptation and strategic change. The link between strategy and organisational change and the key role of culture change are explored, as are the ways in which leaders and managers can gain the commitment of professional staff and so ensure that the changes become embedded in the organisation.
The unit aims to enable managers to analyse critically the complexity of strategic change so as to help them explore and evaluate ways of successfully using tools and concepts to deliver effective and sustainable change. It will also provide them with an understanding of change as a complex and dynamic process to which prescriptive approaches cannot be readily applied.
