DMCCS – Managing Change

This module is designed to enable participants to apply theories of change in practical ways. Issues of change management are examined from an organizational and individual perspective. The administrators of disability management programs must be able to adapt to external changes ranging from the effects of new technology to new legislation and regulation. Internal policies and procedures will affect, and be affected by, the disability management program. Individual returns to work may be influenced by changes within the organization or by the effect of personal changes in physical and other capacities. A positive workplace culture and effective leadership can help individuals and organizations adjust to change.
