around change management. These include ‘BOC – Promoting Gas & Gear
through effective change management’, a case study which examines the
change management process used to relaunch the organisation’s retail
brand. This piece will enable students to define change management,
identify the key steps in a change management process and understand the
benefits of effective change management.
Other case studies that include change management are ‘Westpac –
Creating a sustainable business’, which looks at the way Westpac has
used change management to create a socially responsible business, and
‘Australia Post – the enduring power of paper’, which examines the way
in which consumer communication needs are changing and how the business
is managing this.
