Effective management in changing environment
Change is constant in business and good change management is critically important for organizations to succeed, also in universities of applied sciences. Changing environment brings new opportunities, but also insecurity. Controlled process of change always requires high quality management.
The objective of my study is to examine the expectations and attitudes towards a change process in KyUAS and in Mikkeli UAS. My thesis will be carried out as a qualitative case study. I will use interviews and surveys to gather the information. My challenges are linked to my own role, since I´m both the researcher and a part of the group I´m investigating. I think my biggest challenge is how to be an unbiased, reliable researcher.
Research question: How to help the progress of achieving organizational objectives in a change situation?
