The Challenge of Change

Organisations exist in an increasingly Volatile – Uncertain – Complex – Ambiguous (VUCA) world. Recent research has shown that 90% of SME’s and above go through some form of large-scale change every 5 years.

About this course:

The research showed, alarmingly, that 80% of these organisations failed to achieve their planned change objectives. Why? The reasons for failure are many and varied – but what it boils down to is lack of effective planning, and the inability to manage change effectively. Where organisational change is key to survival, failure in not an option.

This 3-day programme will provide learners with a unique, pragmatic approach to planning and managing change, which is based on extensive research into how forward-thinking organisations manage change effectively. Learners will be immersed in practical techniques of planning and managing change, focusing on the processes involved but emphasising also the importance of managing people through the change journey.
