Team Dynamics and Change - L3M4

Purpose:  On completion of this module, learners will be able to identify the influence that people and teams can have on procurement and supply success and recognise the challenges associated with and methods to achieve, organisational change.

Aim:  Individuals with responsibility for procurement and supply activity are to operate in a range of environments and within a correspondingly broad variety of teams. The influence of the individual and that of the team on overall organisational success should not be underestimated. Those who work in organisations will, more often than not be expected to cope with change be it small or large, and must therefore understand the triggers that lead to change, the associated responses and methods to ensure and maintain lasting change. This module is designed for those who are involved in the procurement and supply function, who must recognise the wider environment in which they work and the impacts that different types of individuals and team dynamics have to play on organisational success. They must also identify with need for and responses to change, and recognise the coping mechanisms which ensure and maintain change
