Lead and manage change in health and social care

3 Planning your own change management project

Figure 2 The failure of the security solutions company G4S to provide enough trained security staff at the 2012 London Olympics left the Government and Olympic organisers with an urgent change management issue to deal with, as the army was drafted in to help.

In the next activity you will be undertaking a piece of self-directed study, or enquiry-based learning. While we have set a task and recommended some tools, exactly how you carry it out is up to you and you are likely to come up with something very specific to your own situation. Working on your own in this way is something that, as a manager, you have to be able to do confidently on a daily basis, and so it is a key skill you should develop to improve your management and leadership ability.
