Change management and innovation in the international public sector are fundamental but hard to achieve due to the peculiarity of the context, conflicting interests and multiple stakeholders involved. Ever more, change and innovation pertain to changes in strategies, structure, relationship with stakeholders and overall performance, as well as changes in the necessary managerial skills.
The training, crafted to the needs of Mid‐level HR Practitioners, examines how innovation strategies are designed and implemented, and introduce participants to the fundamental characteristics of a successful negotiation process grounded on the capacity to “read” and manage network dynamics.
The discussion in class will arise from analyzing the motivation behind innovation processes and will benefit from a hands‐on approach that will enable a better understanding of change management and innovation lifecycle. Participants will also discuss how to identify barriers and tackle them as well as how to negotiate creating a favorable environment to innovate. Lastly, as organizations flatten and hierarchical structures become less salient forms of organizing, the training will focus on understanding and managing network dynamics to achieve organizational effectiveness.
The program will be based on the blended learning methodology, supported by class discussions, exercises and simulations.
