This module is about leadership at strategic level and the role of transformational leaders as catalysts for change in their organisations and whole industries. The module therefore focuses on two but clearly intertwined elements of strategic leadership and organisational transformation. Effective strategic leadership is a facilitator for organisational success. Leaders have to be knowledgeable, creative, agile and resilient to respond to organisational need in the contemporary workplace. The aim of this unit is to equip leaders with an in-depth understanding of strategic leadership within an organisational context. Leaders will explore the complexities of the role and the theoretical perspectives, approaches, behaviours and skills which can enhance their professional practice. The unit focuses on the leader’s ability to respond creatively to complex organisational challenges and understand how to set and deliver sustainable strategic goals. By studying this module, you should acquire a better understanding of their own leadership, or of the leadership in places of work and the changes that could take place in order to create a more effective leadership.

The aim of this unit is for leaders to develop an in-depth understanding of how to effectively lead and develop people. They will explore the influence and impact of leadership theories, culture, wellbeing, development and design, policy and strategy that can be used creatively within the leadership role. Ultimately, leaders will have the opportunity to propose a leadership and development strategy. Students are expected to develop a number of management / leadership skills that can be transferrable for use in other modules on the course and are essential in the workplace. Students are requested to refer a number of leadership theories which in turn enables them to undertake the tasks that will be given throughout the module. The notes formulated in response to these tasks will lead to you gaining formative feedback for your individual development.

There are two forms of assessment that will be used during the module. Formative feedback is provided for learning, which means it is a guide to show whether the learner is going through the right track. This type of feedback does not say whether the learner has passed or failed; rather, it focuses on any minor area of improvement to enhance their skills and knowledge required to achieve their educational goals. The role of formative feedback is to detect if the work is 'assessment-ready.' This feedback is not recorded against your student record, but is to be used by you to improve your work further. The second form of feedback is ‘summative’ assessment which is 'feedback on learning.' It usually comments on what was done well or poorly in work already done and is often module-specific. Summative feedback falls typically at the end of a unit and is generally focused on the outcome of the program/course. It assesses how much a student has understood the topic and often comes with a grade.
