2016 Insights Lecture
"Change how you think about Organisational Change"
Presenter: Prof Susan Taylor
Event information: Thursday 23 June 2016, 6.00pm, Allan Scott Auditorium, UniSA City West campus
According to Darwin, it is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change. In today's competitive global economy, organisations are undergoing a multitude of changes - large and small - and often initiated when a new leader comes on board. Yet, in too many cases, change initiatives often backfire or fail.
Based on her latest research, world-renowned international researcher, Professor Susan Taylor, will discuss employees' responses to new leaders and their change agendas, and how small continuous changes can become substantial changes in organisations over time.
Professor Taylor is the Smith Chair of Organisational Change and Human Resource Management, and the Co-Director of the Centre for Leadership, Innovation, and Change (CLIC) at the University of Maryland. For more than 30 years, Professor Taylor has presented and conducted research around the world on recruitment, performance management, and procedural justice in organisations, including visiting professorships at the London Business School (UK) and Bocconi University (Italy).
