The 3rd Management Development Session for this school year, entitled "Organizational Transformation in the School Setting," was conducted on 7 May 2019. The facilitator of the MDP was Dr. Mary Grace Leongson, Dean of the College of Business and Management. She was a participant in the 1st Association of Southeast and East Asian Catholic Colleges and Universities (ASEACCU) Leadership Training Program entitled “Executive Leadership Essentials” and this session was her feedback and echo. Dr. Leongson also has an Organizational Development (OD) background.

The MDP included a discussion on change and transformation—the difference between the two concepts, the models an institution can use, and how an institution can prepare, manage, and reinforce change. The second session was a workshop wherein the groups were asked to share their answers to three questions: 1. What change/s do you think can be done to your unit/organization; 2. What specific activities need to be made to make these change/s happen, and 3. As a leader, what can you do to make these changes happen?

The groups also shared their outputs with the whole group. The output will be used during the 2019-2020 Operational Planning in July.
