The course focusses on applying fundamental philosophical underpinnings of change management to real case study. During this course, students will be working with ZURU Company to develop solutions for one of the three challenges that the company set up.Please note: An Erskine Fellow is co-teaching the course in 2023 and therefore the content and delivery will differ from the course description.
