Change management is the application of a
structured process and set of tools for leading the people
side of change to achieve a desired outcome. And in
today’s fast-paced world, every organization can benefit
from a better way to manage change.
Leading corporations, governmental entities, institutions, and non-profits are adopting change management as an organizational and leadership competency, viewing it as a competitive advantage in our ever-changing business world. When change management is done well, people feel engaged in the change process and work collectively towards a common objective, realizing benefits, and delivering results.
Yet it’s been almost 10 years since “Why Transformation Efforts Fail” was published by Harvard Business School professor and New York Times best-selling author, John Kotter. And although his suggestions for how to improve the odds have been widely accepted, the success rate of major corporate change programs remains essentially unchanged - it still hovers at 30%.
Change management increases the success of transformations and project initiatives by applying a structured framework of methods, tools, and processes managing the change from a current state to a future state. This presentation will focus on the top 7 change management strategies that will transform your projects. These strategies and tools have been proven and ‘stress’ tested across a variety of projects to include (but not limited to):
