About the course

To successfully compete in today’s dynamic and competitive environment, change is necessary. Whether you are a large multinational company, a smaller privately held firm, or you operate in the public or not-for-profit sector, you cannot afford to sit idly by. Driven by the need to improve the way your organization works, at the heart of every change lies either people, process or technology. Learn the essentials of a successful change management program so that you can make an immediate and valuable contribution!

While some organizations are adept at planning the tactical components of change, many struggle with how to develop a holistic, integrated approach to change focused on the critical successful factor in any change effort – large or small – people. Engaging the stakeholders most affected by a change is crucial, but how do you achieve this? This program will give you the critical knowledge, strategies, insights and tools to lead or participate in an effective change management program, while focusing on two key challenges of most change efforts: conflict and communication. Using an interactive and engaging model of case studies, videos, lectures, and small group interactions, participants will be exposed to a broad perspective of how change management works, and leave confident and ready to immediately apply the practical, impactful and actionable learnings in their own workplace.
