Modules

In order to thrive in an increasing competitive and global environment an organization must pay attention to its continual effectiveness and development. An underlying feature of the successful organization is its ability to adapt to change. Change can be driven by a number of different forces, including customers, markets and technology. Yet research shows that most change initiatives fail to accomplish their intended outcomes and may even limit the potential of an organization and its people. The consequences of not managing change effectively can be devastating and long lasting, so it’s important that managers ensure they have the skills, knowledge and credibility within their organization to be champions of change. Managers have a clear role and responsibility to ensure that issues like employee voice, individual and cultural differences as well as skills development are appropriately and effectively addressed as part of change management.
