Many of us have been part of a marginally effective or failed change effort. As much as 70% of formal change initiatives fail.
And the remaining 30% are sometimes not completely successful or take more time and resources than originally planned.
This webinar will present approaches to assist organizations with planning & implementing change strategies that improve the success ratio and provide tools to help evaluate readiness, define resources needed, assess progress during and maintain a coherent process.
Today the pace of change seems to continually accelerate and it is important to understand the critical elements that contribute to both failure and success. From small process or policy changes to organization wide fundamental systems changes, slow and methodical, organic and incremental to leaping from "what is” to "what could or must be" for success.
Why you should Attend:
Participants will learn about change as both the process and people impact perspectives. From incremental sometimes insidious organic types we hardly notice to the systemic strategic organization and life changing events.
How to best manage the process and people is critical to any change effort. Take away include the Kotter 8 Steps to Change, 20 Do's and Don'ts, Change as a Human Process, the Formula for Change: Readiness, Resources and Progress Measures, and References to Key Resources.
