Abstract

This paper will describe an organizational change program to be carried out in two not-for-profit organizations in Australia that are providing aged and community care. A pilot project was carried out to secure a research grant from the Australian Federal Government for a three-year research project to strengthen leadership in the not-for-profit aged and community care sector. The paper will summarize the findings from the pilot project, which used systems thinking approaches such as scenario planning. It will also explain an action research approach being proposed to test the leadership framework (developed through the pilot project) in real environments. The research is expected to contribute to theory and practice of leadership in the not-for-profit aged and community care sector in Australia, which is a national priority to be addressed.
