Defence business managers operate in a dynamic environment, with economic and technological changes combining with evolving policy, military and governance requirements. To be effective in this dynamic environment, defence business managers need to be able to articulate the kind of vision required to lead change and promote innovation. The course aims to assist Defence managers to develop the leadership and change management competencies required to influence stakeholders inside and outside of their organisation. To this end the course will explore leadership frameworks and the effect of leadership on organisational performance and the processes involved in managing a change intervention, in particular their capability to lead a Defence sustainment change initiative. In addition, the course examines the importance of innovation and explores how organisational leaders can plan and manage for innovation.
