    Prof. Dr. Christoph Desjardins


     

    Aims and objectives: 
    The seminar in Change Management focuses on growing competencies in the area of Organisational Change and Transformational Leadership. The only constant element in today’s economic world is change. It is not only the most frequent phenomenon in organizations, but it is also the most difficult as many change efforts in organizations fail. The change goals, e.g. to increase the effectiveness of processes or systems or to create synergies are frequently unmet even though on paper the efforts look very interesting and effective. The endeavor fails, not due to the plans or nicely set presentations but because the human factor has not been taken into consideration. The high complexity of change processes and the multiple challenges need the implementation of long-term holistic concepts and a strong commitment of managers and leaders within the organization This module aims at creating an understanding of change and organizational development processes. Based on case studies which address multiple perspectives of organizational change, the topics will be reflected from a theoretical and practical point of view. Special attention will be given to the role of leadership in the context of change management and organizational development.

Costs and benefits are distributed over time, but the actual timing and size of future cash flows are often known only probabilistically. Understanding finance helps the participants to evaluate these uncertain cash flows. Students shall be able to understand and perform basic principles of accounting while also looking at the management side of financial decision making. Important concepts like the absence of arbitrage (law of one price) as the basis for NPV (net present value) and time value of money will be introduced and used as a connection between theory and practice.
