Program Description: Contemporary business environments contain challenges that result in an increasing pace, volume and complexity of organizational change. It is often the case that creating competitive advantage is less a matter of determining the right strategy than of implementing change faster and more smoothly than competitors. Most organizations, whether they are entrepreneurial start-ups or long-established Fortune 500 firms, find that making changes to an organization is a requirement of staying in business. Yet leaders responsible for organizational change continue to have difficulty with the process, and in many cases, are unsuccessful.
This program’s primary emphasis is on the process of initiating and implementing successful change. We will discuss application as well as theories of change, learn to diagnose change needs and examine cases that illustrate different change management efforts in a variety of organizations across a diverse range of business contexts. The exploration of these cases and the understanding of the complex and intricate nature of change, deepens participants’ understanding of the challenges, the techniques, and the burdens associated with leading a major change in an organization.
This program provides methodologies and tools to diagnose change needs and a guide for the planning and implementation of change programs.
Who Should Attend: Management consultants, general management (line or staff positions), aspiring entrepreneurs
During this program participants will:
- Develop an understanding of change theories
- Acquire practical tools to diagnose organizational change needs
- Learn how to successfully lead and manage organizational change
