About the course

Change as the major aspect of organizational life.

Understanding and Leading Change (ULC) prepares participants to meet the problems that come with initiating and implementing change. During the program, participants will examine change processes and the psychological, political, and organizational issues they generate. They will learn to categorize different challenges and identify specific problems for initiators, implementers, and recipients of change.

As German language alternative program we recommend the program „Change Management Seminar“ (CMS).
