conference contributionposted on 2017-12-06, 00:00 authored by Karen BeckerKaren Becker
This paper examines three issues. Firstly, do those driving change understand the reasons for change and their role within this change? Secondly, is individual ability and readiness to learn and unlearn given sufficient consideration when implementing organisational change? Finally, do regionally based organisations present additional challenges when implementing change and expecting individual learning, development and unlearning? Whilst there has been a great deal of research done on organisational change, and on adult learning, there is a need to draw these two concepts together and understand the interrelationships.
