Change Management at UC San Diego

Change management is an enabling framework for managing the people side of change. Research dedicated to this discipline tells us that for changes to be successful, we must prepare, equip and support individuals moving through changes so that they confidently and competently adopt the changes. Without adoption, changes will not be successful, and we will not deliver the desired outcomes.

Change is taking place at UC San Diego every day with new projects and initiatives to improve our performance, communication, collaboration, and enhance our overall experience. For example, you could be implementing technology to enable a more mobile workforce, re-engineering a process to ensure regulatory compliance, or pursuing an enterprise-wide transformation around the customer experience. In all of these changes, people are the common denominator for achieving intended outcomes—which is why you need change management.

Explore - Understand the supporting and opposing forces of change and what we mean by “people side of change.” Hear a success story around successful sponsorship of change.      Build – Gain awareness of the key concepts to successfully lead and manage change. Practice with the tools that help individuals and organizations prepare for and manage changes.      Beyond - Master the levers of change to lead individual and organizational change.  Apply what you learn to large-scale changes that affect the system, organization, and enterprise.
