About the course


The world is changing at an accelerating pace. Individuals and organisations must adapt and transform. Transformation begins with people – the way they see problems and apply creative solutions. It involves a transformation of mindsets and behaviors. People do not resist change, they resist the transitions that change brings. This programme provides a process, framework and strategies to address the human side of organisational transformation in a world of mergers, acquisitions, start-ups, divestitures, deregulation and new technologies.
