Expert Meeting - Academy of Masters & Professional Courses

Thijs Homan

In short


10 November 2016


18:30 - 21:30


Main campus

On Thursday 10 November, the Academy of Masters & Professional Courses (M&PC) is holding an Expert Meeting on change management with Prof. dr. Thijs Homan. The Expert Meeting is the network event of the Academy of Masters & Professional Courses.

We are pleased to invite you to this event. You are sincerely welcome to attend, even if this is the first contact you have with us. 

Theme: Let’s change

There are very few organisations that are not currently undergoing a change trajectory. Even more so, some organisations are going through three, four or five of these at the same time! During the Expert Meeting, Thijs Homan will present a new perspective on organisational change - the 'insider view' of change. Not a prescriptive view of how change should be done, but how change happens in reality. What happens exactly when organisations change? And which conditions make them start moving? A thorough analysis of the dynamics leads to new understanding about what organisational change really is. Homan combines theories about social meaning processes with the theory of chaos and complexity. He also explicitly looks at the psychological aspects of change and the power processes that underlie change. He uses these ideas to introduce a new, concrete perspective on the ins and outs of organisational change.
