2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the IES annual conference 2011 / [ed] Leonard W. O’Sullivan and Chiara Leva, 2011, 48-57 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Within the aviation industry the need for sustainable change is becoming more and more unavoidable. Change is in fact something being imposed on the industry from a number of sources (e.g. Upcoming Regulations, in-creasing commercial pressure and the introduction of new technologies) and the need for change management skills and capability within organisations is increasing. The paper presents the initial approach to answer those needs in a research project called MASCA (MAnaging System Change in Aviation. The project is sponsored by European Union to deliver a structure to manage the acquisition and retention of skills and knowledge, through training on organisational processes for managing change. MASCA takes an action research approach with a primary focus on the transfer of change management capability into the organisations that are responsible for and involved in change initiatives; especially in the area of performance management in safety.
