Making change happen.

We've developed a suite of resources to help leaders and managers enable successful change and projects at York.

Why we've created these resources

Like many organisations, we exist in a climate of constant and increasing change. While this can make the University a dynamic and vibrant place to work, it can also present challenges.

Be it big or small, change happens best when we understand it and know why we are doing it. This helps us feel good about it and put ourselves in a good position to deliver it well and support our staff.

Change management

Learn about change management at your own pace. Discover new topics or top up on areas you're less familiar with. Activities range from five minutes through to a couple of hours. They include videos, online courses and written guides.
