The tools and theories learned in this degree program can only begin to prepare students for the challenge of leading change in complex urban and government environments.  This course addresses the practical skills necessary to negotiate new policies and plans through government, industry stakeholders and the community. Examples of successful change, and what factors influence success or failure, will be examined through case studies presented by local and visiting international leaders where possible. The course will explore the management principles necessary to build strong alliances and teams and to support new directions. The course will ask each student to explore how to improve their leadership skills.  Understanding the ethical foundations of good governance and individual behaviour will be examined.
