Course Overview

Understanding Change is important to all business leaders and there are already vast amounts of information available from a variety of sources on the topic of change management. This 2-hour interactive Board Room Briefing will simply focus on explaining WHAT change is, WHY it comes about and HOW change can be successfully delivered. There will be opportunities to network, whilst discussing the drivers for change in your organisation and the briefing will introduce some of the tools, models and methods associated with change management. Delegates will be provided with sufficient information to walk away with a greater awareness and understanding of the topic.

Despite ‘change’ being very well researched and documented, the delivery of change is unfortunately often poorly executed. This can result in the failure to achieve the required business benefits and/or the incorrect implementation of regulatory change, which can lead  to negative publicity for the organisations involved.

One possible answer for the poor track record is the lack of guidance on HOW to deliver the change.  Models, methods, frameworks and processes can be easily found, however, are these really providing the leaders of today with the key information they need when  implementing change?

Whilst many change management models provide theory of the topic, there is often little to help prepare todays leaders and managers with the tools and skills to help them with the WHY, WHAT, WHEN, HOW and WHERE?
