Develop and perfect your change management skills
The Diploma in Leadership for Change Management can prepare the student for taking up a new change management and any leadership role. It is also ideal for those who would like to develop and perfect their skills within an existing change management role. Throughout, the student is encouraged to use the ideas both in the context of their own experience and through a case study, in order to gain a greater knowledge of the subject area in a practical manner.
Keith is an experienced programme manager and team leader, used to managing and delivering scopes around strategy, routine objectives and crisis situations – or what one client called ‘living in the middle of gory messes’.
He has worked in U.S.A., South America, Europe (Belgium, U.K.), Middle and Far East, spending 21 years for G.E. (U.S.A.), Guinness U.K. and Intel Ireland, where his ultimate position was innovation project office manager.
He helps teams and organisations develop and deliver better projects, either by improving their solutions through the application of design thinking, improving their execution strengths through good project management skills, processes and behaviours, or understanding organisations and how their dynamics can help/hinder change
Keith believes almost all teams are capable of surpassing the expectations placed on them, if given the chance to participate and contribute.
Keith worked initially in the Gas Turbine, Brewing and Semi-Conductor Industries but, since leaving Intel, has worked in innovation in many sectors in Ireland, including Food/Drink, Financial Services, Electronic Devices, Services and Education. A co-author of an Intel paper on innovation in software development, Keith has a strong interest in education. Innovation programmes started by IDL in Ireland have seen over 1,750 participants complete their courses over the last 7 years.

We believe that adult learning is most effective when presented in a relevant context so that the skills, strategy, and knowledge are meaningful to participants and can be applied directly in the training.
Our training methodology is based on the premise that participants/adults have their own experience and we utilise a process of questioning and generating a dialogue before presenting concepts and models. By doing this vs. lecturing, we gain participant involvement and buy-in before we build models and teach learning points. This makes the learning relevant to your experience.
The diploma in Leadership for Change Management features decision-making simulations, case studies, short lectures, and the sharing of experiences through interactive discussions with faculty and your peers, allowing you to put your new knowledge to the test.

This module is assessed by a Professional Development Project (PDP). The learning philosophy underpinning this form of assessment is that students learn best from applying the concepts, models etc, they have covered in the classroom and in their directed reading to a practical organisational setting.
In doing this, students develop a greater knowledge and understanding of innovation and design thinking and of how it can be applied in a practical context. The objective of your Professional Development Project is to provide a platform in job interviews and your Performance Reviews at work to demonstrate your aspirations and worth to your organisation.
A pass grade on the written assignment will be required for awarding of the Diploma. A fail grade will result in a Certificate of Attendance for the course but without the Diploma being awarded.
Students must attend at least 80% of classes to graduate with either the Diploma or Certificate of Attendance unless a serious and verifiable reason for further absence is provided. If completing the course online, attendance and participation is tracked through Moodle.
The assignment/project must be handed in on the due date unless a sound reason for lateness is provided. In such instances, an extension may be awarded at the discretion of the lecturer.
“Keith’s classes are always free flowing and come across in a style that makes it easy to learn. He uses real life experience to demonstrate key points. He is very approachable and encourages active participation in all elements of the classes. I have enjoyed this course and would recommend it.”
“Keith is a great lecturer as he has the hands on experience & examples of situations to back up what we were learning.
I will definitely be recommending City Colleges to anyone who will listen!”
