Well here we are, at the final outcome of the course. This outcome looks at Organisational Change and how to effectively manage change. If you are still going strong at this stage then congratulations. Hang in there just a little while longer, we are almost done.
In this outcome you will need to study a ‘major change issue’. You teacher will decide on an issue for you. Major issue are things like mergers & acquisitions, globalisation, and social responsibility etc. These issues are not examinable by themselves. So the exam won’t ask you about a merger you have studied this year. What you do need to be able to do is Apply everything you learn in this outcome to your particular issue. So keep that in mind as you are going through these videos. Ask yourself can I apply this content to the issue we are studying in class.
