The Art and Science of Change Management
In order to survive in an increasingly challenging world, organisations need to constantly change to address new markets, respond to market pressures and adopt new practices, processes and cost structures. In webinar 1, we’ll discuss the world ahead, drivers for change, the challenges that change brings and define the discipline of Change Management.
The Human and Change
While the drivers for change are often economic, technological, spatial or process orientated, the key ingredient is people. Change can be disconcerting and destabilizing at a personal and organizational level. We’ll explore the human dimensions of change, how the brain responds to change and set out a model for managing change.
Designing a Change Program
While there is much theory written on managing change, putting the theory into practice means recognizing the realities of the change and the factors at play in the environment in which the change is going to take place. We’ll talk about the practicalities of designing a change program, getting people onboard and how to maintain the change over time. We’ll also explore what it takes to be a great change leader.
In this workshop, we will use a case exercise based on a real situation to consolidate learnings. Participants will work in teams to define the change needed, build a Change Program and deliver the program to satisfy the Board of Directors.
