Globalization and related trends have created an era of rapid change that reaches into the lives of all organizations. The capacity to change has become a necessary core competency for all organizations. Organizational leaders need to be able to produce more successful change by making better use of the human resources at the organization's disposal. Leaders must learn how to make organizations work smarter. This involves becoming more adept at leading change. This paper presents the design and content of a problem-based learning module designed around a computer-based simulation intended to help organizational leaders learn to lead change. In the simulation, learners are confronted with the problem of implementing new information technology (e.g., a new ERM system) in a company. Students learn through an interactive process of team learning through playing the computer simulation, periodic instructor debriefings, readings, and written reflection exercises. They use the problem- based simulation as a means of constructing and being able to apply relevant theories of change management.
